Soldiers get free entry to Oxford United football game

Oxford United Football Club has honoured the armed forces by giving service personnel free entry to one of its matches.

Uniformed personnel with military identification were allowed into Saturday's home game against Hereford free of charge.

Club chairman Kelvin Thomas said the project was a "thank you to all the military personnel".

It is the second year the football club has held such an event.
