One of two men accused of murdering a British soldier on a London street last week was arrested by detectives just after being discharged from the hospital on Friday.

The 28-year old suspect had been undergoing treatment after being shot by police in the aftermath of the attack.

He is now in custody at a South London police station.

On Thursday, the other of the two suspects appeared in court charged with murdering the soldier.
