Michael Adebolajo is thought to have lived in the village of Saxilby at some point with his family.

A Lincolnshire Police spokesperson said: “Lincolnshire Police can confirm that the Metropolitan Police executed a search warrant under Police and Criminal Evidence act PACE at an address in Lincolnshire.”

“This is in connection with the ongoing investigation into the murder of a man in Woolwich.”

“The Metropolitan Police are not prepared to discuss the matter further at this stage.”

The attack happened in Woolwich in broad daylight at 2.20pm as horrified witnesses, including children, looked on.

Eyewitnesses say the victim was hacked to death by two men shouting Allahu Akbar - God is Great.

A man, thought to be Adebolajo was filmed holding a meat cleaver and knife, his hands covered in blood, saying he carried out the attack because British soldiers are killing Muslims every day.

They were shot as police tried to arrest them, are now under armed guard at separate hospitals in London.
