Residents were shocked to discover a former neighbour could be a suicide bomber.

A Crawley man is believed to have carried out a suicide bombing in Syria. He has been named by the BBC as 41-year-old Abdul Waheed Majid.

He is believed to have carried out a suicide truck bombing in the city of Aleppo in Syria last Thursday (February 6).

Anti-terrorism police searched a house in Martyrs Avenue, Langley Green, this morning (Wednesday February 12).

Bernadette Murphy moved in two doors from the house nine months ago.

She said: “I don’t know the family very well. They keep themselves to themselves.

“I’ve seen people in and out. A lot of movement there over the last few days.

“It just looks like a regular family.”

A neighbour who lives opposite the house added: “They used to keep themselves to themselves but they were very nice people.

“They always said good morning.”
