Police have made two more "significant" arrests in connection with the Westminster terror attack in the west Midlands and north-west England areas. Nine people remains in custody following similar raids in Birmingham, London and other parts of the UK, with one woman released on bail.

Police also confirmed Khalid Masood, the terrorist who was killed outside the Houses of Parliament, was born Adrian Russell Ajao. The 52-year-old is believed to have had a number of aliases, one of which was reported to be Adrian Elms.

Police previously revealed the man who drove into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge before crashing the car into the gates of Parliament and stabbing PC Keith Palmer was born in Kent and believed to have lived in the west Midlands.

He is also reported to have been a married father of three who worked as an English teacher.

Masood was known to police and has a range of previous convictions for assaults, including GBH, possession of offensive weapons and public order offences.

His first conviction was in November 1983 for criminal damage and his last conviction was in December 2003 for possession of a knife. He had no convictions for terrorist offences and there was no prior intelligence about his intent to carry out a terrorist attack.
