More details of the man who was shot dead and behind the Streatham attack has emerged.

Sudesh Amman, 20, is confirmed to have grew up in Harrow as a child.

The attacker was a student at Park High School, Stanmore from the years of 2011 to 2016.

At the time of his sentencing in December 2018 for possessing and distributing terrorist documents, he also had an address in Harrow.

In a Skype chat, he told his girlfriend at the time of a terrorist attack he was planning in Queensbury.

He was jailed for three years and four months, and was released in the past six weeks under police surveillance before the attack in Streatham yesterday (February 1).

Sam Armstrong, from the Henry Jackson Society, said Amman was thought to have been later staying in a bail hostel in Tulse Hill.

The attack happened at around 2pm yesterday on Streatham High Road, where three people were taken to a hospital in south London - including the two stabbing victims who were a woman in her 50s and a man in his 40s.

The man was initially considered to be in a life-threatening condition, but has since recovered.

Amman was found carrying a hoax explosive device on his body, and was shot dead by armed officers.

Isis released a statement on its propaganda channels that the attack was carried out by an Isis soldier.

In an interview with Sky News, the mother of Amman called him a "nice polite boy".

After the attack, a Met Police statement added: "The situation has been contained and officers from the Met's Counter Terrorism Command are now leading an investigation into the incident.

"The incident was quickly declared as a terrorist incident and we believe it to be Islamist-related."
