CCTV images show a Sudanese asylum seeker driving around London before he tried to 'kill as many people as possible' when he ploughed into cyclists and police officers outside the Houses of Parliament.
Salih Khater was today jailed for life today for carrying out a copycat terror attack on August 14 last year.
The 30-year-old drove his Ford Fiesta into a pedestrian and riders who had stopped at a red light in Parliament Square.
He then careered into a security lane and crashed into barriers as two police officers jumped out of the way.
Chilling CCTV images released today show Khater driving around London in the silver Ford Fiesta on the morning of his attack.
Khater claimed he came to the capital to find the Sudanese embassy to get a visa but 'got lost' around Westminster and panicked.
The attack was caught on CCTV footage which was played in court. The Old Bailey heard Khater, of Birmingham, wanted to cause maximum carnage and it was 'miraculous' that no-one was killed.
Alison Morgan QC had told jurors Khater's attack was 'premeditated and deliberate' and had a terrorist motive, although the details were unclear.
