The funeral of a soldier from Nuneaton who died in Afghanistan last month will take place later.

38-year-old Sergeant Jonathan Kups has been described as 'a man of real substance' and a 'wonderful husband'. He died on the 21st of September.

The MoD said on Friday that the death of Sergeant Kups was not thought to be the result of hostile action.
