Dereham celebrates Light Dragoons' return to Norfolk

Soldiers from the Light Dragoons regiment received a warm welcome from thousands of people on Wednesday as they paraded in Norfolk.

The regiment, based at Swanton Morley, marched through Dereham where they have been awarded the freedom of the town following their recent tour of Afghanistan.

Commanding officer Lt Col Sam Plant said: "These parades are an opportunity for people to show their gratitude and, just as importantly, its an opportunity for us to show our gratitude to them."
