Met Police praise public effort during Lee Rigby murder

The death of Lee Rigby "brought people together", Assistant Commissioner Cressida Dick, the head of the Met’s Specialist Operations said today, after two men were found guilty of his murder.

This horrific attack, which took place in broad daylight on the streets of London, shocked the country and was intended to divide communities. It had largely the opposite effect and has, in fact, brought people together.

The court heard of extraordinary acts of courage and compassion from members of the public at the time of this terrifying and dreadful incident.
