It is thought Gavin Emmett, 29, from Hereford, was killed in a roadside ambush in the war-torn region.

He was working for Blue Hackle, a UK-based firm that specialises in operating in global trouble spots.

A spokesman for the firm said it was trying to determine the full circumstances of his death on Saturday. He leaves a wife and young child.
