Masood, 52, was born in Kent and detectives believe he was most recently living in the West Midlands.
Scotland Yard said Masood had previous convictions for assaults, including GBH, possession of offensive weapons and public order offences.
His first conviction was in November 1983 for criminal damage and his last conviction was in December 2003 for possession of a knife.
……Masood was also known by a number of aliases, the Metropolitan Police said.
Three people were killed when the knife-wielding attacker ploughed a car through pedestrians on Westminster Bridge, before storming the Parliamentary estate. He was shot dead.
Earlier, Prime Minister Theresa May said the attacker was born in Britain and had previously been investigated for suspected extremism by MI5.
He was once investigated in relation to concerns about violent extremism some years ago but was a “peripheral figure”.
Gotta watch out for the muzzies in your ‘peripheral’ vision, mate.

Four people, including a London police officer who was stabbed and the alleged assailant, were killed in terror attack that saw more than 20 people injured outside the Parliament building on Wednesday in an act described as “sick and depraved” by British Prime Minister Theresa May.
Acting Deputy Commisssioner and Head of Counter Terrorism Mark Rowley told reporters they believe there was only one attacker. Among the injured were three police officers.
“Sadly, I can confirm that now four people have died. That includes the police officer who was protecting Parliament, and one man that we believe to be the attacker who was shot by police at the scene,” he said.
He added: “We are satisfied at this stage that it looks like there was only one attacker. But it would be foolish to be overconfident early on.”
A full counter-terrorism investigation is underway.
Police said a vehicle mowed down pedestrians on London’s Westminster Bridge, leaving more than a dozen with injuries described as catastrophic.
Rowley said the car then crashed near to Parliament, and at least one man – armed with a knife – continued the attack and tried to enter Parliament.
The knife-weilding attacker stabbed a police officer and was shot on the grounds outside Britain’s Parliament, sending the compound into lockdown.
The threat level for international terrorism in the U.K. was already listed at severe, and will remain so, according to May. The attack came on the one-year anniversary of the terror attacks in Brussels in which 32 people were killed and more than 300 injured.
British authorities first tried to describe the terrorist as ‘Asian’:
This speaks volumes about the muzzie culture:
The entire continent of Europe is saturated with these muzzie thugs, yet the idiots in government keep making excuses and pandering to them. The terrorist attacks in Britain are increasing.
The rise of Islamic terrorism on the European continent started the day they put out the welcome mat for Haji invaders.
Muzzie animals commit massacres across Germany and have engaged in multiple terrorist attacks in France and Belgium, starting with Charlie Hebdo in January, 2015. Evidently, they haven’t had enough carnage. Instead of preventing these muzzie monsters from entering their region and deporting the rest, they prefer to become eunuchs for the New Caliphate.
