Michael Adebowale, who was given a 45-year prison sentence for the murder of soldier Lee Rigby, has been given permission to appeal against his sentence.
Adebowlae, 22, was convicted of killing Fusilier Rigby in Woolwich, south-east London on 22 May last year.
He was convicted alongside fellow Islamic extremist Michael Adebolajo.
A full appeal hearing in front of three judges will take place at a later date, a spokesman for the judiciary said.
