Council honours troops with beer

Breckland Council has welcomed home troops returning from Afghanistan with a specially commissioned ‘Breckland Hero’ ale.

The council’s comms team commissioned Iceni Brewery to create the beer and ­arranged for it to be available in 17 local pubs, with a donation to the Help our Heroes Campaign and the Army Benevolent Fund for every pint sold.

Every soldier in the Light Dragoons was ­presented with a bottle of the beer.
