Police appeal for witnesses to Woolwich murder

Seven days ago Lee Rigby was murdered, in an act of violence that was shocking and horrific. Our thoughts are with Lee's family and friends at this very difficult time for them.

A fast paced and complex investigation is now underway led by detectives from the Met's Counter Terrorism Command.

As part of that investigation officers are asking for the publics' help. We need to hear from anyone who may have seen Lee being attacked or who may have any other information that may help.
