Woolwich suspect 'a lovely, humble young man' says neighbour

Madeline Edwards, a neighbour of Woolwich murder suspect Michael Adebowale, told ITV News she is astounded he could be involved in the brutal attack on soldier Lee Rigby.

Describing him as a "lovely young man" whose mother was "very hard working" she said:

"He is just a very humble young man, quite solitary. I know he turned towards Islam, but I did not know he held views that he would have ended up in this situation."
