The widow of soldier Lee Rigby broke down in tears today as two men denied his murder.

Rebecca Rigby watched tearfully as Michael Adebolajo, 28, and Michael Adebowale, 22, appeared at the Old Bailey via videolink.

They also each denied attempting to murder a police officer on May 22, the day of Fusilier Rigby's death, and conspiracy to murder a police officer on or before that day.

Both wearing red T-shirts and pale trousers, they appeared from separate rooms for today's hearing.

Adebowale sat in front of an HMP Belmarsh sign.
