Wayne Rooney and Joe Hart have led tributes to the work of the British military.

The England players helped front the FA’s support for the UK troops to mark Armed Forces Day celebrations across the country.

Prime Minister David Cameron has praised the “courage, determination and sacrifice” of the military whose bravery, he said, “keeps all of us safe”, while Labour leader Ed Miliband thanked servicemen and women for their “huge contribution” to Britain.

Thousands of people attended the national event to mark the day at Stirling Castle in Scotland, with a Red Arrows display and parachute jumps set to entertain the crowds.
