London: A 41-year-old Briton has been charged with plotting a terrorist attack on an airport, after chemicals like nitric acid and sulphuric acid were found at his house.

Police raided the house of Duncan Railton, who works at a chemical company, in Warlingham, Surrey, and found the acids and yellow phosphorous sticks, The Sun reported.

The man shared the house with his mother and brother.

Officials also alleged that Railton intended to target a bus.
