Skydive in memory of Private Anthony Frampton

The families of two soldiers who were killed in Afghanistan today marked their deaths with events hundreds of miles apart, but with the same aim, to raise money for charity.

In Lincolnshire the sister of Private Antony Frampton performed a sky-dive. 240 miles away the widow of Private Gregg Stone completed a gruelling walk to his barracks in Warminster. The events were both tied to anniversaries which were being marked by their families, as James Webster reports.
