Last May, Nicky Reilly a 22 year old Muslim convert, let off a home made nail bomb in the toilettes at Exeter’s Giraffe restaurant, but as luck would have it, instead of him successfully killing dinners he only hurt himself.

The sentencing was due in October last year, but Mr Reilly has been afflicted by Asperger’s Syndrome, a form of autism. The signs became evident from the age of nine his Mother revealed to the court and at 16 he attempted suicide.

Reilly said in a note at the bomb scene, “I have not been brainwashed or indoctrinated. I am not insane” and he was doing “what God wants from his mujahideen.” He was sentenced to life in prison.
