WATCH: Cheshire soldier who helped Las Vegas victims

One of the British soldiers commended for bravery during the Las Vegas massacre had broken off birthday celebrations to help the injured, it has emerged.

Trooper Stuart Finlay of 1st The Queen's Dragoon Guards turned 25 on Friday and was celebrating with fellow soldiers over the weekend, his father revealed.

But the much-anticipated Vegas getaway, taken while on leave from military training, was sickeningly derailed when a concert came under heavy gunfire on Sunday.

The father-of-one from Ellesmere Port, Cheshire, left an evening meal near the Nevada strip to find a bloodbath - and darted towards danger with two other troops.
