Hundreds of people lined the streets of Corby this morning to welcome home soldiers from the Royal Anglian Regiment following their tour of Afghanistan.

Around 200 service men and women marched from West Glebe Pavilion to Corby Borough Council using the 'Freedom of the Borough' awarded to them in 2012.

Another homecoming parade is due to take place in Kettering this afternoon.

Further celebrations will be held in Bedford and Stevenage later this week.
