Children are creating artwork reflecting on the death of Drummer Lee Rigby to replace work which was stolen.

The group had previously done three pieces which were displayed at different entrances to South Park, South Park Drive, Ilford.

One of the mural boards was stolen last month and the group, which meets at Clementswood Community Centre, Connaught Road, Ilford, decided they wanted to make a replacement.

Wilson Chowdhry, who organised the sessions with artist Matt Ryan, said: “The children were really disappointed when the art piece was stolen.”

Lee Rigby was killed in May this year during an attack in Woolwich.
