RAF men killed in Afghanistan helicopter crash are named


Two British air force members killed in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan have been named as Flight Lieutenants Alan Scott and Geraint "Roly" Roberts, the Ministry of Defence (MoD) said.

The RAF pair died after a Puma Mk 2 helicopter crashed while landing at Nato's Resolute Support mission headquarters in the Afghan capital Kabul.

Group Captain Simon Paterson, station commander at RAF Benson, said the men were "two of our most capable and dedicated colleagues and friends".
