Former soldier returns Veteran's Badge in protest

A former soldier who was jailed for refusing to fight in Afghanistan has handed back a medal in protest at Britain's involvement in the war.

Joe Glenton, 27, from York, served six months in a military jail after he admitted going absent without leave. He was released in July.

Mr Glenton said handing over his Veteran's Badge to 10 Downing Street was a "powerful statement".
