Police charge Michael Adebolajo with murder of Drummer Lee Rigby and attempted murder of two police officers
Police have charged a second man with the murder of the soldier Lee Rigby in Woolwich last Wednesday.
Michael Adebolajo, 28, has also been charged with the attempted murder of two police officers and the possession of a firearm.
He was released from hospital yesterday after being shot by police, and taken into custody.
Michael Adebowale, 22, has already been charged with murdering the young soldier and is due to appear at the Old Bailey on Monday. Two men aged 42 and 46 arrested on suspicion of being involved in the illegal supply of guns were bailed today to return to a south London police station later this month.
An inquest was opened and adjourned into the father-of-one's death at Southwark Coroner's Court, where it emerged that he had been working at the Tower of London on the day he died.
The Queen also visited the barracks where he was based, and met soldiers and officers from his chain of command.
Meanwhile officers in Scotland last night said a 25-year-old man had been charged in Inverness in connection with an alleged hate crime on an internet memorial page for Drummer Rigby.
In a statement, police in Scotland said a man was charged "in connection with an enquiry into alleged hate crime comments on Facebook".
The man is expected to appear at Inverness Sheriff Court on Monday.
