Funeral For 'Proud' 2 Para Soldier
An Essex-based paratrooper who disobeyed a direct order to save a friend has been laid to rest.
Private Martin Bell's been described at his funeral as "the epitome of courage and the finest example of what makes this country great''.
The 24-year-old was the 350th UK military fatality in Afghanistan since operations began in 2001.
Pte Bell, from the 2nd Battalion The Parachute Regiment in Colchester, was fatally wounded by the blast from an improvised explosive device (IED) to the south of Nahr-e-Saraj in Helmand province on January 25.
He was struck as he moved to help a comrade injured by a separate device.
Today, hundreds of mourners packed Bradford Cathedral for a funeral service with full military honours.
The mourners were led by his parents Elaine and Simon, along with his brothers Oliver and Philip.
His dad paid tribute to him during the hour-long service, "Martin was my son, my brother, my hero, my best friend and, along with his brothers, my everything.''
Pte Bell's mother, Elaine, 53, told the service: "We've learned that he truly was courageous.''
She thanked the Paras for their support and said: "We now know why Martin was so proud to be part of such am elite force.''
Drivers in Essex are being urged to slow down when it's raining - after 5 deaths and 69 serious injuries on the county's roads in the last year.
A new service is now available in Essex, providing a single point of contact for victims and survivors of sexual violence and child sexual abuse.
More than 100 people have lost their lives through suicide in prisons in England and Wales so far this year - nine at Chelmsford Prison.
