London attacker 'known to MI5'

The Westminster attacker was British-born and known to the police and intelligence services, Prime Minister Theresa May has revealed.

She told MPs he had been investigated some years ago but was not part of the current intelligence picture.

The so-called Islamic State group has said it was behind the attack.

Eight arrests in London and Birmingham followed the attack that has left four dead - PC Keith Palmer, Aysha Frade, Kurt Cochran and the attacker.

Seven of the injured are still in hospital in a critical condition. A further 29 had been treated in hospital, police said.
