A British soldier has been killed after a patrol vehicle struck a roadside bomb in southern Afghanistan, the Ministry of Defence said.

The soldier from the Light Dragoons cavalry regiment died on Saturday during an operation in the Nahri Saraj district of Helmand province.

The soldier's death brings to 427 the number of British personnel to have died since operations in Afghanistan began in October 2001.
