Mr Reilly will appear before the Old Bailey for sentencing on January 30 2009.

On May 22 this year a bomb exploded at the Giraffe restaurant, in Princesshay, when the shopping complex became the target of a terrorist attack.

Hundreds were forced to flee the area after recent Muslim convert 22-year-old Nicky Reilly set off a nail bomb in the restaurant's toilet.

Last month Reilly pleaded guilty to attempted murder and engaging in preparation of terrorist acts, when he appeared before the Old Bailey via video link.

He was remanded in custody and was due to be sentenced today.

CCTV footage of Reilly's movements was seen in court today.

This footage sees Reilly as he walks through the Princesshay complex en- route to the Giraffe restaurant.
