ONE of the two murderers of Fusilier Lee Rigby has launched an appeal against his whole-life prison term, the Judicial Office has confirmed.

Michael Adebolajo was sentenced at the Old Bailey in February alongside Michael Adebowale, who was jailed for life with a minimum term of 45 years.

The pair were sentenced by Mr Justice Sweeney for butchering the 25-year-old father-of-one, who served in as a drummer with the 2nd Battalion of the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers, in Woolwich, on May 22 last year.
