RAF crews return from Afghanistan

Returning airman and family
The Tornado crews left Lossiemouth in June

Tornado crews from RAF Lossiemouth have returned home after four-and-a-half months in Afghanistan.

The Moray base's 12 (Bomber) Squadron has been based at Kandahar, in temperatures of more than 45C.

The air crew and ground crew left RAF Lossiemouth on 14 June and helped during the Afghan elections, as well as operating in Helmand Province.

SNP MP Angus Robertson said there would be a "great deal of relief" that they completed the tour safe and well.
