Grant, 29, from Newham, east London, was arrested before Christmas last year with a Kenyan woman he had married days earlier, and a second Kenyan man.
Chemicals including ammonium nitrate, acetone and lead nitrate were found in the one-bedroom apartment Grant had rented in a rundown suburb of Mombasa, the largest city on Kenya’s coast.
