Mental health unit opened in memory of fallen soldier

Private Tom Wroe and his family should have been celebrating 19th birthday this week. But last September, Tom became one of the youngest British soldiers to die in Afghanistan when he was killed by a rogue Afghan policeman.

His parents have now opened a new facility in his memory, aimed at helping those with learning difficulties and mental health problems. It's in his home village of Meltham near Holmfirth and it's named the Tom Wroe Unit.
