LIVE video footage of Weston Town Council marking Sunday's Armed Forces Day was broadcast to soldiers in Afghanistan.

The council used the new Weston Television channel to send across images and sound of the event in Clarence Park to members of the Talisman Squadron, who held their own version of the event last Friday.

The squadron is a mixed unit mainly consisting of Royal Engineers, but also includes medics and members of the Royal Logistics Corps (RLC), Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers (REME) and the Royal Artillery.

The Clarence Park event, which was free, was attended by dozens of families.
