Troops parade through Eastwood


About 70 soldiers have paraded through a Nottinghamshire town following their return from a tour of Afghanistan.

The soldiers from 170 Infrastructure Support Engineer Group marched from Our Lady of Good Counsel church to the Lawrence Centre.

Veterans from the Royal Engineers also took part in the march as they exercised their freedom of the borough.

"The aim was to allow people to see these soldiers", Broxtowe Borough Council mayor Jacky Williams said.
