Michael Adebolajo, 29, and Michael Adebowale, 22, mowed the young soldier down in a car before hacking him to death in front near Woolwich barracks in south-east London on May 22 last year.

The pair, who said they chose Rigby as their victim because he was wearing a Help for Heroes hooded top, were convicted of the soldier's murder last December.

They could face whole life terms after a key court ruling earlier this month.
