Lee Rigby killer's brother criticises whole-life term

The brother of one of Lee Rigby's killers has told the BBC that his brother's whole-life tariff was unjust.

Jeremiah Adebolajo said it was "strange" that his brother Michael was given a longer sentence than Pavlo Lapshyn, a Ukrainian man who killed a Muslim and plotted to bomb a series of mosques.

He added that his brother would be "productive" to society if he was released and that he had sympathy for Lee Rigby's son, who would grow up fatherless.

The interview was broadcast in full on BBC Radio 5 live's Victoria Derbyshire programme on 26 March.
