More than 100 soldiers have had limbs amputated after being blown up by roadside bombs in Afghanistan, official figures showed yesterday.

And as many as 40 have lost more than one arm or leg after being caught in an improvised explosive device (IED) attack, figures released today show.

Many soldiers – some still in their teens – have been terribly maimed. 

They include Sapper Matthew Weston, of 33 Engineer Regiment, who lost both legs and his right arm after he stepped on a mine during a foot patrol in Sangin, in Helmand Province, in June last year.

And Lance Bombardier Ben Parkinson who doctors described as the most severely wounded British soldier to ever to survive after a landmine explosion in Afghanistan left him with 37 injuries, including severe brain damage, memory and speech loss, multiple fractures and the amputation of both legs.
