The US troops who remain in Iraq take on new role

The American military combat mission in Iraq formally ends on Wednesday.

But 50,000 troops are staying on to train and advise Iraqi security forces.

A much reduced force is still based at Forward Operating Base Warrior in the northern city of Kirkuk.

Gabriel Gatehouse met some of the troops who are staying behind.
