Murdered soldier Lee Rigby has been formally identified but the cause of his death was not confirmed by a post-mortem examination, police said today.

Drummer Rigby, 25, was hacked to death in the street in a horrifying attack in Woolwich, south-east London on Wednesday.

A post-mortem examination was carried out on his body yesterday but no cause of death has been confirmed, Scotland Yard said.

An inquest into his death will be opened in due course.
