It has been called the most dangerous job in the world - bomb disposal experts put themselves in harm's way to disarm improvised explosive devices.
Improvised explosive devices (IEDs) have been responsible for 80% of British deaths in the Afghan province of Helmand.
British Forces believe they may have caught a Taliban bomb maker behind the death of at least one of the bomb disposal experts.
Jonathan Beale met soldiers training for these risky missions.
