The second man arrested over the murder of Drummer Lee Rigby has been discharged from hospital, police say.

Michael Adebolajo, 28, has been taken into custody at a south London police station, where he will be questioned.

The other suspect, Michael Adebowale, 22, has been charged with the soldier's murder and appeared before magistrates on Thursday.

Drummer Rigby's family have called for calm amid reports of a rise in anti-Muslim incidents following the attack.

Faith Matters, an inter-faith organisation aimed at tackling extremism, said it had recorded 212 incidents since last Wednesday, up from between four and six per day.

In a statement, Drummer Rigby's family said: "Lee would not want people to use his name as an excuse to carry out attacks against others".

"We would not wish any other families to go through this harrowing experience and appeal to everyone to keep calm and show their respect in a peaceful manner."

Mr Adebowale and Mr Adebolajo were shot by police and arrested at the scene of the killing on a busy street in Woolwich on 22 May.

Police investigating Drummer Rigby's murder have also arrested two men, aged 42 and 46, on suspicion of being involved in the supply of illegal firearms.

In total, police have arrested 12 people in connection with the investigation so far; six of these have been bailed and two released without charge.
