Iraq war veteran from Leeds among those at Cenotaph

An Iraq war veteran, who lost his left eye and 80 per cent of his vision when he was shot by a sniper, was among those involved in the Remembrance Day commemorations.

Simon Brown, from Morley in Leeds, marched as part of a group of fellow blind veterans.

He came in to the studio yesterday (Monday) to tell us why he rejects calls to stop marking Armistice Day.
