The Westminster terror suspect who ploughed into at least 15 cyclists and pedestrians appears to have travelled to London from his Midlands home in a Ford Fiesta bought just two months ago, MailOnline can reveal today.

The man, who is in his late twenties, is refusing to speak to police who have still identified him and believe he was not known to Scotland Yard or MI5 before the shocking carborne rush hour attack this morning.

But security sources have suggested the suspect is from the Birmingham area and may be known to police back home in the Midlands, where his car was first registered in Nottingham.

The vehicle police say he ‘deliberately’ used as a weapon was written off by insurers in the Autumn of last year but put back on the road and sold again eight weeks ago.

Today the terror suspect looked dazed as he was dragged from the smoking silver Ford Fiesta by around a dozen armed officers who had their rifles trained on him.

The horrifying moment the driver sped through crowds at up to 50mph before ploughing into barriers outside the Houses of Parliament was caught on CCTV.

A ‘loud bang’ followed by screams echoed around Parliament Square at 7.30am this morning and footage uncovered by the BBC shows the car swerve the wrong way down the road and ‘intentionally’ veer through crowds before smashing into a security barrier.

Two uniformed police officers manning the checkpoint designed to withstand a high speed lorry attack are shown diving away and detectives are investigating if they were the true targets.

Three people were injured and one female cyclist is being treated for serious but not life-threatening injuries in hospital, which MailOnline understands is a broken hip.

Geoffrey Woodman, 27, from Battersea, heard a ‘loud screech’ and told MailOnline: ‘It [the Ford Fiesta] cut out in front of us through the red light on the wrong side of the road. It swerved left and hit the lady two bikes to my left. Its windscreen hit her quite hard. One slight turn of the wheel and it would have taken me out. It was chaos’.
