A cortege carrying the body of Corporal James Oakland who was killed in Afghanistan is due to pass through Oxford this afternoon.

Members of the public and the Royal British Legion will pay their respects as the cortege passes along Headley Way, in Headington, on route to the John Radcliffe Hospital.

It is due to reach the hospital at 2.25pm.

The 26-year-old, of the Royal Military Police, was killed in an explosion on October 22.
