Soldiers put finishing touches to Rhys Jones Centre

A team of soldiers have been finishing work at a community centre dedicated to schoolboy Rhys Jones who was shot dead in Liverpool.

Some work on the complex in Croxteth Park was never completed because of a lack of funding. The Army provided equipment and twelve soldiers to get the job done.
