It is with great sadness that the Ministry of Defence must announce that the soldier killed in yesterday's incident in Woolwich, South East London, is believed to be Drummer Lee Rigby of 2nd Battalion The Royal Regiment of Fusiliers (attached to the Regimental Recruiting Team in London).

The soldier's details were released by the Ministry of Defence on 23 May 2013 pending formal identification from the Metropolitan Police Service.

Friday 12 July 2013: The prime minister and thousands of mourners have today attended the military funeral of Fusilier Lee Rigby at Bury Parish Church in Greater Manchester.
