Counter-terrorism police have been searching a home in Birmingham over the weekend where friends of Westminster attacker Khalid Masood lived.

Officers were seen by neighbours on Saturday at the maisonette in Bredon Croft, Hockley, less than 200 yards from a property Masood had lived in until the end of 2016.

Specialist police search teams were still at Bredon Croft home on Sunday removing bags of evidence.

Meanwhile, a 58-year-old arrested in Birmingham remains in custody.

The hunt for the 52-year-old Masood's accomplices saw 11 people held after raids across the country.

Russia's leading opposition figure has been arrested as Russia witnessed the biggest sign of public unrest in five years.

Anti-corruption campaigner Alexei Navalny, who is leading the opposition to Vladimir Putin, was held as he headed towards a banned protest attended by thousands of his supporters in Moscow's Pushkin Square.

Hundreds of thousands have defied authorities to demonstrate across the country despite the police warning they will not be responsible for "negative consequences".

The public unrest was the largest since the massive 2011-12 demonstrations that followed a fraud-tainted parliamentary election.

Mr Navalny was last month found guilty of embezzlement in a retrial of a 2013 fraud case.

The decision effectively derailed his plan to run for president next year.

Labour will reject any Brexit deal which does not pass "six tests" to be revealed tomorrow, Sir Keir Starmer has said.

Any deal must offer the "exact same benefits" the UK has from the single market and customs union, the shadow Brexit secretary added.

He said: "If our tests are not met then we do not intend to support the deal the government comes back with."

In order for Labour to back Brexit, the deal must:

  • Offer the exact same benefits as the single market and the customs union
  • Provide fair management of migration in the interests of the economy and communities
  • Create a strong collaborative future relationship with the EU
  • Prepare to pay a Brexit divorce bill

[Full list to be revealed Monday]
