Moving family footage chronicling the life of Fusilier Lee Rigby has been released ahead of the third anniversary of his killing.

The previously unseen home movies show the young soldier drumming in his full military regalia in Windsor and dancing and joking around with his sister.

His mother Lyn Rigby promised she would keep his memory alive after he was butchered on the streets of Woolwich by Islamic extremists on May 22 2013.

Mr Rigby, who died at the age of 25, is also shown laughing and smiling at a family gathering and passing along the street in a parade.

He married Calderdale woman Rebecca and had a son, Jack. The couple later split up.

Lee’s mother said: “It’s three years since my beautiful son Lee was killed on a London street. I’d like people to remember Lee as his family and friends do - as a son, brother, father, partner, uncle and comrade.

“That’s why we’ve decided to release this footage of Lee filmed by his family, including clips of him smiling and trying to dance with his sister Sara, at his passing out parade and drumming in full ceremonial gear in Windsor. Watching it makes me so proud of him.”

Last year, a memorial was set up for the drummer in Woolwich at the military barracks he was returning to when he was attacked.

The two men convicted of his murder, Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale, are thought to have targeted Mr Rigby because of his connection with the armed forces.
