VC soldier 'just doing the job'

A soldier awarded the first Victoria Cross in over two decades for saving 30 colleagues by guiding them through an ambush in Iraq said he was 'just doing the job'.
Private Johnson Beharry, 25, was struck by a bullet as he guided a Warrior armoured convoy through the flashpoint town of Al Amarah last May.

A month later, the young soldier saved more lives in a second ferocious exchange and suffered serious head wounds in a rocket-propelled grenade assault that left him in a coma.
