Hundreds of well-wishers have honoured murdered soldier Drummer Lee Rigby at a vigil on the eve of his funeral.
His comrades, forces veterans and members of the public lined the route to Bury Parish Church, where soldiers will keep a guard of honour over the body of Fusilier Rigby overnight before his funeral tomorrow.
The event took place in Bury, located a couple of miles from his hometown of Middleton, Greater Manchester, which came to a standstill as pubs and shops around the church closed as a mark of respect.
Drummers from the 2nd Battalion Royal Regiment of Fusiliers will today drum the cortege of murdered soldier Lee Rigby, past soldiers of the Regiment lining the route to Bury Parish Church for the vigil to begin this afternoon.
Fusilier Rigby will be borne into church and a short ceremony will take place attended by his family.
The honour guard will remain with Fusilier Rigby's body overnight inside the church.
The public and media have been asked to pay their respects outside the church, and the private military service will be broadcast on loudspeakers.
