The Met’s assistant commissioner Neil Basu said Usman Khan had been living in Stafford and officers were searching his address. We believe that this address is where police were seen raiding a property next to the Star and Garter pub on Wolverhampton Road last night. The property remains cordoned off this morning whilst police search teams remain at the scene.

In the last half hour police have erected scenes of crime tents and screens outside the property which remains a significant site of interest for the

investigation.

Stafford FM understands that Usman had been living at the property since December 2018 when he was released from prison on licence.
