Thousands of people have turned out in Taunton to welcome home the Royal Marines of 40 Commando from Afghanistan.
700 Marines paraded through the town's streets which were lined with huge crowds.
The troops were among the very first deployed to the country nearly 12 years ago. Now, after four tours they are among the last to return.
