Theresa May revealed MI5 knew of the attacker but considered him a 'peripheral' figure who was 'not part of the current intelligence picture'   The man police believe to be responsible for the terrorist attack in Westminster has been identified as Khalid Masood, 52. It also emerged today the attacker was known to MI5 after an investigation many years ago, but was considered 'peripheral' One of the properties raided was a flat in this building in the Winson Green area of Birmingham, where neighbours claimed Masood lived with a woman and a young child         

Police teams carried out fingertip searches of the area this morning to gather potential evidence in the investigation
