Two people were arrested as angry scenes accompanied a march of 200 soldiers through a Bedfordshire town centre to mark their return from Iraq.

It happened as anti-war protesters held placards saying "Anglian Soldiers Go To Hell" and "Butchers of Basra".

The pair, thought to be members of the public watching the parade in Luton, were held for public order offences.

Daniel Boettcher reports.
