Rigby murderer given whole-life term
Michael Adebolajo has been ordered to spend the rest of his life in prison for the murder of soldier Lee Rigby in Woolwich, south-east London.
Adebolajo, 29, and Michael Adebowale, 22, drove into Fusilier Rigby with a car before hacking him to death in May last year.
Adebolajo was given a whole-life term; Adebowale was ordered to serve at least 45 years.
The pair were absent during sentencing after a scuffle in the dock.
