Leicester Cathedral will today open a book of condolence, following the attack on Drummer Lee Rigby, who died in Woolwich on Wednesday afternoon.
The Very Revd David Monteith, Dean of Leicester said, “This is a time to stand together and a time to draw from our rich traditions of sympathy and peace.
"We will build the common good here by shunning violence and by growing compassion and understanding with one another."
