British soldiers face intense heat to help Afghan farmers

British soldiers have just completed a major construction project, which will help Afghan farmers.

Soldiers from Two Four Engineer Regiment have finished building a bridge across the Nahr-e-Burgha Canal.

It's now the biggest in Helmand at over 4 metres wide and 45 metres long.

Until now locals had been forced to use a narrow tunnel to move around with their cattle.

The engineers worked in their body armour in temperatures reaching 130 Degrees Fahrenheit, whilst being guarded by Afghan soldiers
