Another Monday. Another Tribute. 

Wootton Bassett stands silent once again 
 
The people of Wootton Bassett paid another moving tribute to the latest casualties of the Afganistan conflict today.
 
Last week's tragic victims - number 109 and 110 - transported through the market town just after 1.45pm, where a crowd of over two hundred stopped to pay their respects.
