Armed Forces begin 'March for Honour' for fallen heroes

Armed forces personnel have set off on a 1,000-mile "March for Honour" to raise £1m for the Royal British Legion.

The Army, Royal Navy, Royal Air Force and Royal Marines teams started from various places in the UK.

The team members will each march 250 miles, carrying 40lb of kit, to London's Royal Albert Hall in time for Remembrance Day on Thursday.

They will pass through Wootton Bassett, Wilts, as one unit on Tuesday.
