Blast soldier gets Military Cross
A soldier who lost both legs and an eye in a bomb blast in Afghanistan has been given the Military Cross.
Cpl Ricky Furgusson, from Telford in Shropshire, went to help soldiers wounded by improvised explosive devices (IEDs) on four separate occasions.
He was presented with the medal, which recognises exemplary gallantry during active operation, by the Queen.
The 25-year-old, of the 4th Battalion The Rifles, walked to meet the Queen with the aid of carbon fibre legs.
