The body of a Kent Gurkha killed in action in Afghanistan has been flown back to Britain.

Cpl Kumar Pun was one of four soldiers killed in a single day in Afghanistan last week.

A private ceremony was held today at RAF Lyneham in Wiltshire.

A cortege drove them through the market town of Wootton Bassett.

Hundreds of well-wishers lined the three-mile route.

The occasion was also marked with a fly-past.
