The widow of murdered soldier Lee Rigby has said "justice has been done" after seeing the High Court firmly reject appeals by his killers.
A panel of three judges threw out the conviction and sentence challenges by Islamic fanatics Michael Adebolajo and sentence reduction challenge by Michael Adebowale.
Rebecca Rigby, who was estranged from the soldier at the time of his death, joined her late husband's family in court and later choked back tears as she read a prepared statement outside.
I would like to thank everyone who made today's verdict possible. We are relieved that this is over and justice has been done. I would like to thank everyone for their continued support over the last 18 months and hope I can now build a future for my son Jack and ensure that (Lee's) memory lives on.
