A wreath has been laid during a memorial service in Antrim by Royal Engineers with Northern Ireland’s 591 (Antrim Artillery) Field Squadron 71 Engineer Regiment to the memory of murdered Sappers Mark Quinsey and Patrick Azimkar.

Sappers Azimkar and Quinsey, of 38 Engineer Regiment, were killed in March 2009 when gunmen opened fire at the barracks as soldiers went to collect a pizza delivery.

They had been due to deploy to Afghanistan just days later.

Four other people were injured in the attack.
