The Ministry of Defence is to accept liability for the death of the first British soldier killed in Iraq, his widow's solicitor has said.
Tank commander Sgt Steve Roberts died nearly two years ago after being ordered to hand over his body armour.

Widow Samantha, 34, from Shipley, West Yorkshire has campaigned to find out the circumstances of Sgt Roberts's death near Basra on 24 March 2003.

He was shot during a riot in Az Zubayr just days after the conflict began.
