One of the pair – Michael Adebolajo – was photographed outside Paddington Green police station six years ago behind notorious hate preacher Anjem Choudary reports the Daily Mail.

It also emerged that Adebolajo was a violent ex-prisoner who was a member of a banned terrorist group and was intercepted by officials as he attempted to travel to Somalia last year.

David Cameron has ordered a full intelligence review by a Westminster committee.
