The name of murdered soldier Lee Rigby will be placed on a national memorial honouring Britain's dead servicemen and women in Staffordshire.

Trustees for the Armed Forces Memorial at the National Memorial Arboretum said Drummer Rigby's name would be inscribed there as he had died in a terrorist attack.

Drummer Rigby, 25, who had been in the 2nd Battalion the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers, was killed in a knife attack carried out during the day in Woolwich, London, last Wednesday.
