Wooton Bassett repatriations end

The town of Wooton Bassett in Wiltshire will no longer be home to repatriation ceremonies for British service personnel who die overseas.

There will be a special ceremony through the village to mark the town's repatriation parades.

The town's former mayor, Percy Miles, considers what this will mean for the community.
