Woolwich: Soldier's Family Appeals For Calm

The family of murdered soldier Lee Rigby has appealed for calm and an end to attacks in the wake of his death.

In a statement following the opening of an inquest into the killing of the 25-year-old, the family said: "We would like to emphasise that Lee would not want people to use his name as an excuse to carry out attacks against others.

"We would not wish any other families to go through this harrowing experience and appeal to everyone to keep calm and show their respect in a peaceful manner."
