Far-right group hold London protest

Far-right and opposing groups are holding demonstrations in England today amid increased tensions following the death of soldier Lee Rigby in Woolwich last month.

His family stressed yesterday that the young soldier would not have wanted violent attacks to be carried out in his name, and urged protesters to remain peaceful.

In a statement released through the British Ministry of Defence, members of Drummer Rigby’s family including his mother Lyn, stepfather Ian, wife Rebecca and son Jack, 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.
