Bodies of bomb attack soldiers return home

The bodies of three British soldiers who were killed in a roadside bomb attack in Iraq were being flown back to the UK today.
Private Leon Spicer, Private Phillip Hewett and Second Lieutenant Richard Shearer, all from the Staffordshire Regiment, died last Saturday in the south-east of the country.

Their bodies were expected to be repatriated to RAF Brize Norton in Oxfordshire, a Ministry of Defence official said.
