PM pays tribute to five British military personnel

Prime Minister David Cameron has paid tribute to five British military personnel who were killed when a Lynx helicopter crashed in southern Afghanistan

Every British fatality is a source of deep sadness. This latest incident, which has cost the lives of five UK service personnel, brings home to us all once again how our armed forces continue to put their lives on the line to help the people of Afghanistan.

I cannot pay high enough tribute to each and every one of them for the job that they do and the sacrifices that they make.
