Iraq war hero Colonel Tim Collins has shown his support for war veterans in Northern Ireland.

He attended a black tie dinner organised by an injured Northern Ireland soldier in aid of war veterans.

Andy Allen was just 19 when he lost both his legs and his eyesight in an explosion in Afghanistan in 2008.

The Royal Irish Regiment veteran was joined by Col Collins and politicians for the Saturday fundraiser at the La Mon Hotel, Castlereagh.
