A Helston woman dubbed the 'Angel of Woolwich' for confronting the killers of Lee Rigby is facing allegations of racial abuse.

Ingrid Loyau-Kennett was praised by the Prime Minister for calmly talking to armed murderers, Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale.

She is now under investation over claims a Tesco worker was abused in the Duchy.

A Tesco spokesman said: “We are aware of an incident at our Helston store. Colleagues are helping the police with their enquiries.”

The 49 year old was on a bus when she witnessed the killing in May 2013 and got off to see if she could help.

She was photographed speaking to the killers as police arrived at the scene.

Later she revealed what she had told the pair: “I said, ‘It is you versus many people, you are going to lose, what would you like to do?’ and he said, ‘I would like to fight’.

“The other one was much shyer and I said, ‘Would you like to give me what you have in your hands?’

“I did not want to say ‘weapons’, but I thought it was better having them aimed on one person like me, rather than everybody there.”
