3:00pm Saturday 13th July 2013 in News
A friend has paid tribute to a soldier who was killed in a horrific attack.
Tom Freret laid a wreath at Lewes War Memorial in the town’s high street yesterday in memory of Lee Rigby.
The 26-year-old from Lewes taught music to Fusilier Lee Rigby, who was killed in Woolwich, south-east London, in May.
Mr Freret laid wreaths bearing Lee Rigby’s name and ‘Stand Easy’ at the town’s memorial yesterday at 10.45am while residents looked on solemnly.
He said: “When I was laying the wreath I felt a bit sad and tearful, to be honest.
“I only put posters up in businesses and pubs the afternoon before, so I was really pleased and grateful for the turnout.”
