A service has been held to remember soldiers from a Worcestershire town recently killed in action.

The names of the service personnel from Kidderminster were added to the town's war memorial ahead of a ceremony to rededicate the statue on Sunday.

L/Cpl Richard Brandon, 24, who died in Afghanistan, was among those names have been added.

His fiancee Emma Jane-Webster said it was important he was remembered in his town.

L/Cpl Brandon was serving with the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers when he was killed by a roadside bomb last October.
