The town of Warminster in Wiltshire came to a standstill today, as residents paid their respects to the six soldiers killed in Afghanistan last week and saw off their comrades now heading into the war zone.

400 soldiers from the 3rd Battalion the Yorkshire Regiment, based in Warminster, marched through the town, as Robert Hall reports.
