Family and friends watched a poignant ceremony as five British servicemen killed in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan were repatriated to the UK. Hundreds of people gathered in the sunshine at Carterton, Oxon, to pay their respects to the fallen personnel as they returned to British soil.
Family members then lined the road on Norton Way, clutching flowers including red and white roses, lilies, brightly coloured tulips and yellow daffodils. The street fell silent at 4.52pm, when the bell tolled to mark the arrival of the servicemen's families at the Memorial Garden.
