Afghanistan Taliban: Did UK soldiers die in vain?

British military personnel have been deployed to Helmand Province in southern Afghanistan, after reports that the Taliban are close to taking the key town of Sangin.

UK combat operations in Afghanistan officially ended last year.

More than 450 British personnel died during the 13-year conflict, and most of the British men and women who lost their lives there, died in Helmand Province.

The BBC's special correspondent Lucy Manning reports on the story of two families, whose loved ones were killed in Helmand.
