An autistic man's been jailed for planting a homemade bomb on a busy tube train in London.

Damen Smith, 20, built the device after watching instructions on an Al-Qaeda website.

Smith told police the bomb, which didn't go off, was intended as a prank.

The judge accepted Smith didn't intend to carry out a terrorist act - but says that doesn't alter from the fact he still committed a serious crime.
