The family of Corporal James Dunsby have paid a loving tribute to him, saying "a greater man you could not meet".

Cpl Dunsby became the third army reserve soldier to die from injuries sustained during SAS selection training in the Brecon Beacons.

His family said: "James was and will remain a dearly loved, son, brother and husband. He had the uniquely wonderful ability to endear, enchant and captivate all who he met with his naughty sense of humour and highly intelligent wit.

"With James as your friend you were ensured loyalty, strength, allegiance, protection and most of all a damn good laugh. James adored the Army and believed so passionately in his duty as a protector of Queen and country and of the realm.

"James was so dearly loved by so many and will be sorely missed. Hurrah & Huzzah for James Dunsby; a greater man you could not meet."
