"Servicemen and women from the Portsmouth area will join the final deployment of British combat troops to Afghanistan, it has been announced today.

The final deployment of troops to Afghanistan will take place in June this year, according to a statement from defence secretary Philip Hammond.

Some 762 individuals from each of the services will also deploy, made up of 67 Royal Navy personnel, 320 Army personnel and 375 Royal Air Force personnel, while reservists will also be called up.

Mr Hammond said this deployment, which will be the 20th Operation Herrick, will be the final phase of the mission as UK Armed Forces end combat operations by December 31."
