Undercover police looked on as terrorist suspects apparently used the mountains of Snowdonia as a training ground. They are accused of taking their lead from copies of the Al Qaeda magazine Inspire, which contains blueprints for home-grown attacks. The alleged 16-month plot emerged as four British Muslim men appeared in court yesterday charged with a raft of terrorist offences. (Snip) Another said: I was like driving past the TA centre
if you had a small toy car, theres a small gap under the gate. You could drive it under a vehicle that they use.

Limeys... a related culture separated by a common language.
My translation. Some koranimals planned to use radio controlled cars stuffed with explosives to raise a little mayhem at police(?) stations or military posts.
Unfortunately if the cars were big, they wouldn't fit under gates; if too small, how much damage could they do?

R/C cars can go pretty quick, operating with either batteries or a proprietary fuel blend. They can also get pretty large.
This is a 1/5 scale R/C car. Two strokes and pump-bought gasoline are the norm.

There was also a Batman cartoon episode where an arsonist used toy cars to carry out his firebomb attacks throughout Gotham.
