Tributes paid at Oxfordshire repatriation ceremony

About 2,000 people have lined the route of a military repatriation ceremony at RAF Brize Norton in Oxfordshire.

Sgt Barry Weston, from Reading and of Plymouth-based 42 Commando, was killed by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan.

His body is the first to arrive at the £2.8m purpose-built centre near Carterton since repatriations were moved from RAF Lyneham in Wiltshire.

Members of the Royal British Legion lowered their flags as the cortege passed.

Robert Hall watched as the cortege made its way through the crowds.
