Greenwich council has confirmed that a memorial stone to mark Lee Rigby's death will be installed this week.

May 22, will mark six years since Fusilier Lee Rigby was brutally murdered outside the Woolwich Barracks.

In the unprovoked attack in 2013, which sent shockwaves around the world, Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale mowed down the 25-year-old in a purple Vauxhall Tigra.

He was then repeatedly 'hacked at' with knives and a meat cleaver, leaving him almost decapitated.

The council has been working tirelessly with the family of the fallen soldier to find an appropriate memorial for Lee.

Now, to mark the anniversary, Greenwich council has confirmed that there will be a memorial tree and stone placed at the site of the murder to remember him.

The stone will be installed before the anniversary and the council is asking that no-one create their own memorial as it will be taken down.

A spokesman from Greenwich council said: "The family wishes to be left in peace and grieve and re-build their lives.

"They request that no flags or memorabilia be left on the site.

"Anyone who would like to commemorate Lee should make a donation to the Fusilier Aid Society, the Lee Rigby Foundation or Scotty's Little Soldiers."
