Andy Allen: Soldier badly injured in Afghanistan on rebuilding his life
A former soldier who lost both his legs in an explosion in Afghanistan has described how working for a veterans charity near his Belfast home helped him put his life back together.
Andy Allen was 19 when he had his right leg blown off and left leg shredded by a makeshift bomb while on an early morning patrol in Helmand province in 2008.
He spoke to BBC News NI's Francis Gorman.
