A SUSPECTED al Qaeda-inspired cell was caught red-handed filming potential terrorist targets including Mornington Crescent and Camden Town tube stations, say police.

According to senior officers the Algerian gang may have been employed to prepare the ground for an atrocity in central London or at major regional shopping centres such as Bluewater.

Five men were arrested in a series of raids in July last year after one man was caught filming and acting suspiciously at Liverpool Street. Two men were convicted of a huge mobile phone and luxury goods fraud racket and deported after serving prison sentences.

Police said the two men, both in their 40s, were based at a flat in Brent.
