Lee Rigby: Once a Fusilier, always a Fusilier

His unit, the 2nd Battalion the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers, which recruits heavily from the North West - faces the axe under the latest round of cuts by the Ministry of Defence.

Daniel Hewitt reports now on the story of Lee Rigby's regiment and its defiant motto - once a Fusilier, always a Fusilier.
