Watch: Duke of Lancaster's Regiment to fight ISIS

Troops from the Duke of Lancaster's Regiment are tonight on their way to Iraq in support of the continued fight against the so called Islamic State.

The soldiers will spend six months training Iraqi and Kurdish security forces.

In total, a fighting force of 150 from the regiment will be deployed in Iraq, and Paul Crone was at Weeton Barracks near Blackpool to see the first batch of troops leave.
