Michael Adebowale was convicted along with Michael Adebolajo of attacking the fusilier on 22nd May last year.

The 23 year old was given a life sentence with a minimum of 45 years. He was spared a whole life term but one was given to 29 year old Adebolajo.

A full appeal hearing in front of three judges will take place at a later date.

Adebolajo launched an appeal against his whole life term in April.
