Armed Forces Day: Cameron pledges Afghanistan memorial

A permanent memorial to British service personnel who died in Afghanistan will be built at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire, David Cameron has said.

The prime minister made the announcement as he visited UK troops in Camp Bastion on Armed Forces Day, saying the memorial would be paid for from fines imposed on banks over the Libor scandal.
