It is a terribly sad loss that we suffered in Afghanistan, our thoughts are with the families and friends of the two soldiers who died.
It was a tragic incident, the details of which are not yet entirely clear.
There is an ongoing investigation to establish exactly what did happen but of course the end result is two of our brave soldiers dead and our thought are with the families and friends in what is obviously a very difficult time for them.
Tributes have been paid to Channing Day, a medic with 3 Medical Regiment, who was killed on patrol in Afghanistan on Wednesday.
It is still not clear exactly what happened. But a young woman is dead and a young Marine from 40 Commando has died beside her.
