The bodies of three soldiers killed in Afghanistan are expected to reach Oxford at 3pm today after being repatriated.

Royal British Legion members will line Headley Way, Headington, to pay tribute to L Cpl Tommy Brown, from the Parachute Regiment, L Cpl Christopher Roney, of 3rd Battalion The Rifles, and L Cpl Michael Pritchard, of the Royal Military Police.

The bodies are being flown to RAF Lyneham, in Wiltshire, before being driven to the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford, for post-mortem examinations.
