Three servicemen who were wounded in Afghanistan and Iraq have teamed up with a brewery to create a new beer to raise funds for Help for Heroes.

Veterans Pete Dunning, Simon Brown and Daniel "Baz" Whittingham joined forces with Marston's to perfect the recipe for the new ale.

The beverage called 'Help for Heroes Blonde Ale' is described as having a modern and zesty taste and is set to hit the shelves in 250 branches of Tesco on Tuesday.

The beer's label bears the slogan "Created by Heroes; Brewed by Marston's; Enjoyed by Everyone" and Help for Heroes will receive five pence from the sale of each bottle.
