In a Saturday morning, October 16 statement, the Metropolitan Police have revealed the killing has a potential link to Islamist extremism.

Reports say the politician appears to be of Somali heritage.

The Met said officers are carrying out searches at two addresses in the London area and are not seeking anyone else over the death.

The police say they believed the man, who is in custody in Essex, acted alone but inquiries into the circumstances of the incident are still ongoing.
