Female British Army medic killed is named

The British Army medic who was shot and killed during a foot patrol in Helmand province, has been named as Corporal Channing Day.

She was killed along with a member of 40 Commando Royal Marines - Corporal David O'Connor - in the Nahr-e Saraj district during an exchange of gunfire involving a man "believed to be a member of the Afghan Uniformed Police."

25-year-old Channing, from Comber, Co. Down, Northern Ireland was described as a "bubbly and sporty teenager who dreamed of joining the army as a schoolgirl," a former teacher told reporters.
