The UK's military headquarters in Afghanistan has been disbanded in the latest major step in the withdrawal of British troops.
British-led Task Force Helmand came to an end yesterday after eight years of frontline military operations involving tens of thousands of UK servicemen and women.
Its functions will now be absorbed into the wider US-led Regional Command, the Ministry of Defence said.
As British forces end their command of Helmand, there is growing evidence that the conflict is having an unrelenting toll on children.
As British forces withdraw from Afghanistan, ITV News has obtained exclusive footage showing the conflict's impact on children.
Although British troops will be gone by the end of the year, Afghanistan's future remains uncertain.
