The bodies of two soldiers killed in Afghanistan are being repatriated to the UK today.

Their coffins are being flown to RAF Lyneham in Wiltshire before being driven to the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford for a post mortem.

The cortege is expected to reach Headley Way at about 2.30pm, where Royal British Legion members will line up with the public to pay tribute.

Rifleman Samuel Bassett, of 4 Rifles, died in the Sangin area of Helmand Province last Sunday and Rifleman Philip Allen, of 2 Rifles, died near Sangin the day before.
