RAF Lossiemouth personnel back home in Moray

More than 150 RAF Lossiemouth personnel returned to their Moray home base overnight to be met by relatives after a six-month tour of duty in Afghanistan.

The troops - specialists in guarding airfields - were involved in a major firefight with Taliban insurgents who attacked Camp Bastion in September.

It left two US marines and 14 of the attackers dead.

Several members of the contingent were wounded during the tour of duty.

A homecoming parade is planned for Elgin next week.
