The bodies of the Wiltshire based soldiers killed in Afghanistan are expected to be returned to the UK on Thursday.

The soldiers - 5 of whom were based in Warminster - died when a Taliban roadside bomb destroyed their armoured vehicle last Tuesday.

They'll be flown back to RAF Brize Norton in Oxfordshire.
