Police arrest man, 30, and raid killer’s neighbours

POLICE investigating the Westminster terror attack yesterday arrested a 30-year-old man in Birmingham on suspicion of preparing terrorist acts.

Officers were also continuing to question a 58-year-old man, held in the West Midlands city on Thursday.

Some 15 properties have been raided as part of the investigation. Sharrif and Fatima Drameh, neighbours of killer Khalid Masood, had their home searched after it emerged he used to take their children to a mosque.

Officers removed computers, CD-roms and paper documents from the home the couple share with their four daughters in Hockley, Birmingham.

Mum Sabrina Hussain, 28, whose daughter was friends with Masood’s daughter at school, said the killer ‘gave her the creeps’.

Police were also searching an address in the Sparkbrook district of the city yesterday. A total of 12 people have been arrested in connection with the attack, and nine have been released.

A 32-year-old woman arrested on suspicion of preparing terrorist acts will answer bail later this month.
