Man denies involvement in Woolwich 'atrocity'

A 21-year-old arrested in connection with the murder of soldier Lee Rigby has denied any involvement in the "atrocity".

Hayden Allen, who is reportedly a Muslim convert, was held on Saturday on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder by detectives from Scotland Yard's Counter Terrorism Command.

Specialist firearms officers used a Taser on Allen as he was arrested in Charlton Lane, in Greenwich, south east London, some three days after the horrific killing of Drummer Rigby. He was later released on bail.

Allen said: "I had no prior knowledge of the atrocity that happened last week and I played no part in the incident or the lead-up to it whatsoever.

"My family are wholly uninvolved. I ask that the police continue to investigate and that my family be allowed without harassment to continue their lives."

Three firearms officers involved in the shooting of the men suspected of murdering soldier Lee Rigby could be back on duty within weeks.

The officers, along with two of their commanders, are currently undergoing post shooting assessments and Chief Superintendent Alistair Sutherland said he 'certainly hopes' that they will return to normal duties soon.

He said: "I will obviously speak to my counterparts in our department for professional standards and I will liaise with the IPCC (Independent Police Complaints Commission), and then I will come to a decision around putting them back to ops.

"But at this stage I would anticipate them being back on operational duty fairly quickly."
