A repatriation cortege bearing the body of Royal Marine James Wright, who was killed in Afghanistan on Friday, will arrive in Oxford tomorrow.

The cortege is expected to reach the Headley Way entrance to the John Radcliffe Hospital, in Headington, at 4pm.

The 22-year-old, pictured, who was serving with 42 Commando, was wounded during a Taliban attack on a checkpoint in the Shpazh Gerebian area of Helmand province and died of his wounds in the hospital at the main British base at Camp Bastion.
