A British soldier has been killed in enemy fire while on patrol in Afghanistan, the Ministry of Defence has announced.
The "fantastic" soldier, from 14 Signals Regiment (Electronic Warfare), attached to the Task Force Helmand Brigade Reconnaissance Force, died while on patrol in Helmand Province, the MoD said.
The death takes to 445 the number of UK service members who have lost their lives since operations in Afghanistan began in October 2001 and is the seventh this year.
It is the first UK death in Afghanistan since Corporal William Savage, Fusilier Samuel Flint, and Private Robert Hetherington died when their Mastiff armoured vehicle hit an improvised explosive device (IED) on a routine patrol on April 30.
