Police have raided addresses in Nottingham and Birmingham over the Westminster terror attack after it emerged the suspect who ploughed into 15 cyclists and pedestrians today was known to officers but not MI5, MailOnline can reveal.

Officers from the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command are searching two addresses in Birmingham, where the suspect is said to be known to police, and a property in Nottingham over the attack, but have not arrested anyone else.

Security Minister Ben Wallace described the suspect, who is in his late twenties, as ‘a British citizen who came from another country originally’ on BBC News this evening.

The Metropolitan Police have said the Fiesta the suspect used in the attack travelled from Birmingham to London late last night before arriving just after midnight.

The car was seen in the Tottenham Court Road area between 1.25am and 5.55am before being driven around the Westminster and Whitehall area from 6am. It stayed in the area until the attack at 7.30am.

Horrifying CCTV footage from earlier today captured the moment the driver sped through crowds at up to 50mph before ploughing into barriers outside the Houses of Parliament.

The man 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.

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.
