Two suspects involved in Saturday night's terror attacks on London have been named by police in the UK - with one man having lived in Dublin.

Named as Rachid Redouane, it's understood he was of Moroccan origin and was married to a woman from Scotland. understands that Redouane lived in Rathmines as recently as the end of 2016.

Speaking from Chicago, Taoiseach Enda Kenny said today that Redouane was not under gardai surveillance while living in Ireland.

"There are a small number of people in Ireland who are being monitored and observed in respect of radicalisation and matters relevent to that," he said.

"In this case, these facts are being checked but my understanding is this individual was not a member of that small group."

An Irish ID card was found on the body of Redouane, who was shot dead within eight minutes of the attack by London police alongside two other attackers.
