The death of a homeless former soldier has sparked outrage among veterans charities who say more must be done to look after ex-servicemen.
Ex-squaddie Darren Greenfield, 47, who fell on hard times after leaving the Army, died on the streets of Edinburgh just a week before Christmas.
He was a regular face in the Scottish capital as he often spent time sitting on the steps of Waverley train station.
The Who Dares Cares charity said: 'It is a sign of the times that a soldier is left to die on our streets. It is an utter outrage.'
Mr Greenfield had served with the Royal Tank Regiment but fell on tough times after he left the Army.
The news of his death sparked outrage among campaigners who are calling for more to be done to help veterans adapt to civilian life.
Military charities say at least 13,000 former soldiers are homeless – a record high.
I don't think I need to draw parallels to Grenfell
