A British soldier has been shot dead and six others injured by a rogue member of the Afghan National Army.

The UK soldier, of 28 Engineer Regiment, attached to 21 Engineer Regiment, died at Patrol Base Hazrat, in Helmand's Nahr-e Saraj district.

The gunman fired at Afghan troops and then British soldiers before being killed. Afghan officials dispute Taliban claims he was acting for them.

The male soldier's next of kin have been informed of Monday's attack.
