Floral tributes have been laid at a war memorial in St Matthew’s Church, Skegness, to remember and honour the life of a soldier who was killed in London.
Drummer Lee Rigby, 25, was killed in Woolwich near the Royal Artillery Barrack on May 22 when he returned from working at the Tower of London. Skegness resident Margaret Owen said it was important to remember the soldier and to let the country know that Skegness does care. “I feel it’s important to pay your respects, he helped to keep our country safe and we should let everyone know that Skegness cares,” said Margaret Owen. Rigby suffered multiple injuries after he was hit and attacked with a cleaver and a knife. Two people have been charged with his murder, 12 have been arrested in connection with the incident. Eight have been bailed, two released without charge.
