Soldiers from The Rifles have exercised their right to march through Bristol.

The Regiment was last given the freedom of the city in 2007. Since then The Rifles have been involed in operations in Iraq and Afghanistan where they suffered heavy losses. But today it was all about celebrating the regiment as they paraded through the streets of Bristol - watched by supporters and loved ones.
