Yvette Cooper MP, Labour's Shadow Home Secretary, responding to the guilty verdicts for the appalling murder in Woolwich of Lee Rigby, said:

"This was a vile and sickening attack on an unarmed and innocent man on the streets of London and our thoughts remain with the family, friends and colleagues of Lee Rigby on a day when his murderers have been found guilty.

"The police and security services have worked tirelessly to bring those responsible to justice.

"The message from this court case, from the community in Woolwich and from us all is that acts of barbaric cruelty will do nothing to diminish our resolve to stand up to extremism in all its forms. The local community, and people across the country, have refused to allow murderers and extremists to divide us."
