An army battalion's colours have been paraded for the last time and laid up in a church.

The colours of the now disbanded 2nd Battalion of the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers were paraded in Warwick.

Troops marched through the town for the annual veterans' parade before a service at St Mary's Church.

The Fusiliers has recruited in Warwickshire for centuries and has an area headquarters at St John's House in Warwick.

The 2nd Battalion was granted the freedom of the county in 2014.
