The murder trial into the killing of Sir David Amess has been shown chilling CCTV footage of an alleged terrorist’s journey to assassinate him.
Jurors at the Old Bailey watched the video showing accused Islamist Ali Harbi Ali calmly strolling through north London with a black backpack slung over his right shoulder.
The haunting clip shows the 26-year-old — wearing a long khaki jacket, blue trainers and black trousers — walk past unsuspecting members of the public, including school children, and along residential streets.
He was later spotted catching a train to Leigh-on-Sea in Essex, where he allegedly stabbed the Tory MP to death at a constituency surgery.
The Old Bailey heard how on October 15 last year Ali travelled from London to attend his noon slot at Belfairs Methodist Church.
Jurors were told he stabbed Sir David 21 times and waved a bloody knife around before he was apprehended by unarmed police officers.
