A radicalised High Wycombe teenager who is facing jail for sharing Islamic State propaganda on WhatsApp is set to be sentenced tomorrow. 

Supermarket assistant Iftikhar Ali, of Totteridge Drive, is due to be sentenced at the Old Bailey on Friday after he sent several WhatsApp messages which glorified acts of terrorism between September and October 2015.

He was aged 18 and living at home with his parents and had a job at Sainsbury’s at the time he sent extremist material on his mobile phone.

Examination of his mobile phone revealed Ali had an avid interest in IS, with material including audio files of radical preacher Anwar al Awlaki and images of executions.

He was found guilty of 12 counts of dissemination of a terrorist document and one of possessing a document likely to be useful to a person committing an act of terrorism on December 20.
