Afghan bomb hero is home.

THE body of Scots bomb disposal hero Gary "Gaz" O'Donnell returns to the UK yesterday.

Warrant Officer O'Donnell's union flag-draped coffin was carried from a plane at RAF Lyneham, in Wiltshire, by comrades from the Explosive Ordnance Disposal Regiment Royal Logistic Corps.

The dad-of-four, 40, of Edinburgh, died as he tried to defuse a bomb in Afghanistan's Helmand province.

The 120th British Afghan war victim was yesterday named as Lance Corporal Nicky Mason, 26, of the Parachute Regiment, who was killed on Saturday.
