UK nears end of Afghanistan pullout

17 March 2014 Last updated at 21:52 GMT

The British Army has made another significant move towards its final withdrawal from Afghanistan and has now pulled back to controlling just two bases.

UK troops are now only operating at their Afghanistan headquarters at Camp Bastion and an observation post called Sterga 2, both of which are in Helmand.

At the height of the war, more than 10,000 soldiers controlled 137 bases.

Only 4,000 troops currently remain in the country.

Jonathan Beale reports from Helmand.
