A permanent memorial to Fusilier Lee Rigby in his hometown of Middleton will be unveiled today.
A bronze drum, alongside a plaque for Lee and a memorial wall where, in time, other local soldiers will be commemorated, is being unveiled in Middleton Memorial Gardens.
The memorial will be unveiled at Middleton Memorial Gardens during a private ceremony, before being open to the public from 2.30pm.
Lee, of the 2nd Battalion, Royal Regiment of Fusiliers, was murdered in Woolwich in May 2013 by Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale.
The killers were later jailed for life.
