Colchester Paras have been left off the next tour of duty of Afghanistan.

The Government has announced all those regiments set to deploy next month on Herrick 18.

Soldiers from 156 Provost Company Royal Military Police are the only troops from Colchester Garrison set to deploy.

It goes against an announcement in 2011 which said it was likely troops from 2 and 3 Para were likely to return this year.
