Free Taunton home for injured marine

Injured Royal Marine Cpl Phillip Eaglesham and his family will soon have their own home thanks to South West builders who are working for free.

The project would have cost about £450,000 but the plot in Taunton, the time and expertise are being given for free, and some essentials are being paid for by the Royal Marine's Charity.

Cpl Eaglesham, who was injured in Afghanistan, has started watching the foundations of his house being put in place.
