Mate frocks up for soldier's funeral

Friends comfort Barry Delaney at the Scottish funeral of his best friend, slain soldier Private Kevin Elliott

Before one of them was sent to fight in Afghanistan for the British Army, they made a deal: If one of them died, the other had to wear a dress to the funeral.

So when Barry Delaney turned up to the graveside funeral of best friend Private Kevin Elliott, he did so wearing a tight fluorescent dress, The Times reports.

The green dress was matched with equally bright pink leg warmers and black hiking boots.
