Romford: Soldier Murder Suspect Attacked
A man from Romford, accused of murdering Fusilier Lee Rigby, has been attacked in prison.
28 year old Michael Adebolajo was set upon at HMP Bemarsh in south east London on Wednesday (17 July).
The Prison Service would not comment on reports that he lost two teeth in the incident and had been "targeted'' by prison officers.
A spokeswoman said: "The police are investing an incident that took place at HMP Belmarsh on 17 July.
"It would be inappropriate to comment while the investigation was ongoing.''
Adebolajo is accused of hacking Fusilier Rigby to death together with Michael Adebowale, 22, near Woolwich Barracks in south east London on 22 May.
The pair are expected to stand trial in November.
Following the attack, thousands of people paid their respects at the scene of Fusilier Rigby's death.
But despite pleas from police and the soldier's family for his death not to be used for political gain, there have also been several clashes between rival protesters.
