Soldiers from the Edinburgh-based 3rd Battalion the Rifles have returned home after six months in Afghanistan.

They were deployed to Helmand Province in April this year.

They will be taking part in a homecoming parade and the battalion will be granted the Freedom of the City of Edinburgh.

BBC Scotland went to hear from them on their return to Redford Barracks.
