The news comes as it also emerged that Amri was previously jailed for hijacking a vehicle in his home country of Tunisia.

Islamic State claimed responsibility for the October 16 knife attack which claimed the life of a 16-year-old called Victor E.

Murder squad detectives are probing the similarities between Amri and the photofit picture issued following the murder of 16-year-old Victor E.
