    Southern train

    Passenger complaints about trains operated by Southern rail's parent company soared at the end of last year, according to new figures. 

    Four times as many complaints were received by Govia Thameslink Railway between October and December, compared to the same period a year earlier. 

    The operator says the figures are "disappointing but not surprising" in light of industrial action. 

    It claims complaint rates have since started to fall as the performance of its trains has improved.

  11. Westminster attacker described as violent cocaine user by former acquaintance

    A man who claimed he knew Westminster terror suspect Khalid Masood, when he was known as Adrian Elms, as a casual acquaintance in the early 2000s in Eastbourne told the BBC that he was a cocaine abuser with a reputation for violence. 

    The 41-year-old former electrician, who did not want to be named, said: 

    Quote Message: I first met him in a pub around Christmas Eve 2001 around the time my father died. I was introduced to him as 'black Ady'. We weren't good friends. I believe he had just got out of jail at the time. Some mutual friends had had a call from his cousin saying 'this guy has just got out of prison, come meet him, he's alright.' I didn't speak to him much that evening. He was very polite. He was an angry guy, you could tell. He wasn't the kind of guy you would want to upset. I didn't see him again for a few months, by then he was living temporarily with a friend."

    He described visiting them both in the flat they shared in Eastbourne between 2002- 2003.

    Quote Message: The next time I saw him it was summer 2002 then he was on steroids, though he wasn't huge. There was a brothel a few doors down and I remember Ady saying he had seen prostitutes sleeping in the back garden. He didn't talk much. One time I noticed a Koran and I made a joke like: 'Are you reading that?' He did not seem the religious type at all. He never talked about religion ever. He took quite a lot of cocaine and he seemed to like women with pink hair . He had one girlfriend, maybe she was his wife later on, and she had silicone breasts., So I didn't think he was a religious Muslim at all. But I spoke to my friend who lived with him for a while and he said he used to read the Koran all the time." He continued: 'He was really polite. Everyone who met him said he was really polite, but he had a reputation for being a bit of a psychopath. He was in a pub one night and two guys were playing pool something was said and he battered them both with pool cues."

    He described a minor mix-up over whether they had accidentally dated the same woman. 

    Quote Message: It wasn't the same girl but they worked in the same shop that was how it happened. When it got cleared up Ady said something like: 'If I didn't know you, I would stab you in the face'. I mean he was joking, then he stabbed that guy Dan Smith in the face."

    The pair lost touch in the mid 2000s until he noticed the name 'Adrian Elms' in a newspaper report following the attack on Wednesday.

    Quote Message: I saw the name, but the photo didn't look like him. Then I messaged a friend of Facebook and he was like 'yeah, that's the same guy, that's Ady'."
