Royal Marines prepare for Helmand withdrawal

British forces in Afghanistan will gather to remember fallen comrades on Remembrance Day, with the recent deaths of four British troops in insider attacks uppermost in their thoughts.

As the Nato withdrawal gathers pace, some 500 service personnel are preparing to leave by the end of the year - but before then, Royal Marines continue to mentor local police and army recruits.

Caroline Wyatt reports from Helmand.
