Footage has been released of a daring rescue mission in which four Royal Marines tried to save a comrade in southern Afghanistan. The men strapped themselves to an Apache helicopter's wings to find Lance Corporal Matthew Ford who went missing in an attack on a Taleban stronghold. L/Cpl Ford, of 45 Commando Royal Marines, had died but the men retrieved his body during last week's incident. A UK Task Force spokesman called the mission a "leap into the unknown". And Geoffrey Perry, the father of Chris Fraser-Perry, one of the marines involved in the rescue, said he was very proud of his son.
