Cpl Andrew Roberts: Road named after fallen Middlesbrough soldier
Family and friends of a soldier killed in Afghanistan gathered on Teesside to see a road named after him.
Cpl Andrew Roberts, from the Royal Logistic Corps, attached to 1st Battalion The Royal Welsh Battlegroup, died in a mortar attack in May 2012.
The 32-year-old father-of-three was described as a "hugely respected member of a very close fighting unit".
A ceremony took place in his home town of Middlesbrough, where Corporal Roberts Road was named in his honour.
The road is on a new housing estate in the Hemlington area of the town.
Cpl Roberts' mother Pauline said she was "extremely proud" that his name would now "live on forever".
A Middlesbrough council spokesman said the ceremony marked a "fitting tribute" to a much-loved member of the community.
The section commander joined the Army in 1998, and was on his second tour of Afghanistan after previously serving in Bosnia and Iraq.
