Mothers of soldiers launch support group

The mothers of seven soldiers who were killed in Afghanistan have set up a charity to increase support for UK service personnel and their families.

The women got in touch with each other after their sons died in July, the bloodiest month for British forces in the history of the eight-year conflict.

Jon Kay reports.
