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."

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