The bodies of a Royal Marine and an Army medic killed in Afghanistan have been repatriated.

Cpl Channing Day, from Comber in County Down, and Cpl David O'Connor, from Havant in Hampshire, died in a gun battle on 24 October while on patrol.

Their union flag draped coffins were flown into RAF Brize Norton in Oxfordshire.

An initial MoD review has revealed their deaths were not caused by "friendly fire".
