More than 200 terror suspects face being banned from towns and cities across Britain in the wake of the London Bridge attack, it has emerged.

Police, intelligence services and probation bosses are examining files on 219 extremists after the killings by knifeman Usman Khan, who was released from prison early.

It is believed 69 cases being looked at relate to convicted terrorists freed on bail licence before the end of the sentences.

Another group of 150 includes prisoners approaching release, and suspects who were arrested under terrorism laws but later convicted of lesser offences and are now free.

Every terrorist prisoner on licence will be required to meet their probation team and all will have their restrictions reviewed. 

New limits on their movements and who they associate with could not be imposed, The Times reports.

It comes as it emerged the leader of the terror cell ailed with Khan in 2012 is making a bid for freedom. 

Ringleader Mohammed Chowdhury, 29, is up for parole despite having previously been recalled to prison for breaching his release conditions, the Daily Mirror reports.

He was described as the 'lynchpin' of a foiled al-Qaida inspired plot to blow up the London Stock Exchange in 2010.

Khan, 28, who murdered Saska Jones, 23, and Jack Merritt, 25, at a conference for ex prisoners on Friday, was jailed in 2012 with eight others, including Chowdhury, who got 13 years and eight months.  

Chowdhury, of East London, was released automatically after half his term in 2017. It is not known why or when he was recalled.

A Parole Board spokesman told the Daily Mirror: 'A Parole Board spokesman said: 'We can confirm the parole review of Mohammed Chowdhury has referred to the Board and is following standard processes.' 

Khan's murderous rampage has prompted a review of the threat from other Jihadists.  Two released prisoners have been returned to jail.

They are Nazam Hussain, 34, a friend of Khan, who was arrested in Stoke-on-Trent on Saturday. The Met Police also said that Yahya Rashid, 23, had been detained in north London for breaching conditions.

Yesterday a photo emerged of Khan with hate preacher Anjem Choudary at a Sharia Law conference in Stoke-on-Trent in 2009. 

Choudary, 52, was released last year after serving less than half a five-and-a-half-year sentence for inviting support for IS. 

Hundreds gathered yesterday for an emotional vigil in Cambridge for the two victims of Friday's terror attack.
