A road in Grimsby is to be permanently renamed in honour of war hero Matthew Telford.
The memorial will be officially unveiled on Sunday in a formal parade and ceremony.
Scartho Park, the street which runs through Scartho Top, will be renamed Matthew Telford Park, and will be marked by a plaque.
Sergeant Matthew Telford, of the 1st Battalion The Grenadier Guards, was one of five British soldiers killed in an attack in Helmand Province, Afghanistan, in 2009.
A father has spoken of his anger that lessons haven't been learned a year after his son was murdered by a rogue Afghan policeman. Mick Wroe, himself a former soldier, says his son Tom and Yorkshire Regiment comrade Gareth Thursby would still be alive if proper security measures had been in place.
Despite the tragedy, he says British soldiers are still at risk every single day because the Afghans they're training can carry live ammunition freely around military bases and through security checkpoints. David Hirst reports.
The inquest is due to start into the deaths of two soldiers from the 3rd Battalion The Yorkshire Regiment in Afghanistan. It's nearly a year since Sergeant Gareth Thursby and Private Thomas Wroe were killed by a rogue Afghan policeman at a checkpoint in Helmand Province.
Private Tom Wroe and his family should have been celebrating 19th birthday this week. But last September, Tom became one of the youngest British soldiers to die in Afghanistan when he was killed by a rogue Afghan policeman.
His parents have now opened a new facility in his memory, aimed at helping those with learning difficulties and mental health problems. It's in his home village of Meltham near Holmfirth and it's named the Tom Wroe Unit.
The sister of Private Anthony Frampton, who was one of the six soldiers killed in Afghanistan in March last year will skydive today to raise money for the forces charity.

Soldiers and officers from the 2nd Signal Regiment who have recently returned from a six month tour of Afghanistan will receive their Operational Service medals today. The ceremony is taking place at Imphal Barracks in York. The 300 soldiers were deployed in Helmand Province and Kabul.
Two soldiers and friends - who were both killed on active service within months of each other - will be remembered. Sheldon Steel and Christopher Kershaw died in Afghanistan. A music event being held tonight aims to raise money for a new memorial.
More than three hundred soldiers will march through the streets of York today. It's to welcome them back from Afghanistan. They've been working in Helman Province and Kabul.

The parade will march along Duncombe Place, Blake Street, Parliament Street, High Ousegate, Spurrier Gate, Coney Street and past the Mansion House where the military and civic dignitaries will then take the salute as the troops march past.
