Whitehaven welcomes home soldiers at town parade

Servicemen and women from across the north-west of England were greeted home from Afghanistan with a homecoming parade.

More than 120 soldiers from the 1st Battalion, The Duke of Lancaster's Regiment, marched through Whitehaven in Cumbria on Monday.

Streets in the town centre were closed off for the march and businesses decorated their windows in celebration.

Kingsman Ben Abbott said he felt "very proud" and "appreciated" all the support everyone gave them.
