SNP MP John Nicolson names wrong suspect in Westminster terrorist attack

  • Alfie Baron
Earlier tonight SNP MP John Nicolson tweeted that the Westminster terrorist attacker was Trevor Brooks - describing him as a "home grown fanatic".

John Nicolson tweeted: "Murderer identified as Hackney born Trevor Brooks. Another home grown fanatic. I remember his public heckling of John Reid."

John Nicolson had previously tweeted: "So @Channel4News identify the killer. Another religious fanatic, well known to the police and security services."

It was quickly pointed out to John Nicolson that Trevor Brooks was still in prison, a fact seemingly backed up by his solicitor.

John Nicolson decided he'd believe Channel 4 news and replied: "Thanks. But I think I'll go with @Channel4News".

John Nicolson appears to have removed some tweets. Here's a capture of the tweet:
