Adebolajo, 29, and Michael Adebowale, 22, of Greenwhich, drove into the soldier before hacking him to death with a knife. They both potentially face whole-life sentences.

The pair were convicted of Ribgy’s murder last December and their sentencing was held off until the decision came from the court of appeal that whole-life sentences are justified in the “most heinous cases”.

The decision from the Old Bailey is expected later today. Follow @Romfordrecorder on twitter or watch the website for the verdict.
