A market town is today paying tribute to a Yorkshire soldier shot dead with a colleague by a rogue Afghan policeman. Sergeant Gareth Thursby, described as inspirational by senior officers, was killed last year in a so-called green on blue attack.

This afternoon his name is being added to the war memorial in Skipton where he was brought up.
