Downing Street has become heavily fortified since the Irish Republican Army (IRA) attempted to kill former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in 1984.

Such is the seriousness of the plot that the director general of MI5, Britain's domestic security agency, briefed cabinet ministers on the plot, Sky said.

The terror attack was foiled after a joint operation by Scotland Yard, West Midlands Police, and MI5.

London police said that two men arrested last week had been charged with terrorism offences and would appear in Westminster Magistrates' Court on Wednesday.

MI5 investigators misinterpreted intelligence on Salman Abedi earlier this year and it was disclosed his case was due to be discussed at a meeting scheduled for nine days after his May attack at the Manchester Arena.

It is learnt that two suspected men were conspiring to attack Downing Street armed with an improvised bomb, suicide vest and knives. An official report into the attack released on Tuesday found opportunities to thwart it had been missed. One of the men, named as Naa'imur Zakariyah Rahman, 20, is accused of preparing acts of terrorism.

In 1991, the IRA managed to breach security, launching a homemade mortar bomb attack on Number 10.

Mrs Thatcher narrowly avoided injury but five people were killed - including a Conservative MP.
