100th British soldier killed in Afghanistan is named

The 100th British soldier to die in Afghanistan this year was named last night as Lance Corporal Adam Drane.

The soldier, from 1st Battalion The Royal Anglian Regiment, died as a result of small arms fire in the Nad-e Ali area, in central Helmand Province, on Monday.

Colleagues paid tribute to the 23-year-old from Bury St Edmunds as a “popular, quiet and intelligent” soldier.

His parents Desmond and Jackie Drane said there were “no words” to describe their loss.
