Devon Troops Return From Afghanistan

There were tears of joy last night, as British soldiers got home to Devon after a tour of duty in Afghanistan.

The Helicopter force touched down at Exeter Airport after 3 months away and were met by family and friends.

Lieutenant Commander Nick Sole was one of them, and says his team's done some excellent work: "its been a long 3 months it's been very hard work, the guys have done a stirling job keeping the aircraft flying allowing us to get out and do our core role which at the end of the day is providing the support to the troops on the ground."
