Council homes built exclusively for former soldiers have been unveiled today.

The development of 12 properties in Birmingham cost a £1 million and is the first of its kind in the country.

The councillor behind the project says military personnel should be a priority for housing.

He wants the scheme to be a gesture of gratitude to the armed forces.
