Mayor of London Boris Johnson has condemned the murder of Lee Rigby as barbaric, heinous and completely unjustifiable after Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale were found guilty of the Fusilier's murder.
"The murder of Lee Rigby was barbaric, heinous and completely unjustifiable," the Mayor said.
"Fusilier Rigby was a dedicated and professional young man whose life was taken in the most casual, brazen and horrific fashion, in broad daylight on the streets of London.
"This is a city that prides itself on tolerance, diversity and openness, values that stand in marked contrast to the actions of Lee's killers.
"Lee's courage, and that of those members of the public who sought to protect him, as well as the extraordinary bravery of the police officers involved are what we should remember today."
In her only television interview since the verdict, she told ITV News that she begs forgiveness from Lee Rigby's family.
A mother and daughter who witnessed the attack on Lee Rigby have told ITV News how they are still haunted by what they saw that day.
Lee Rigby's sister told ITV News that she wishes she had not talked her brother out of returning to Afghanistan shortly before his death.
