SAS hero has defended the Falklands War on the anniversary of the end of the controversial conflict.Brave Corporal Mark Aston was one of just nine survivors when the Army helicopter he was in crashed into the freezing waters of the South Atlantic Ocean.

He then defied medical orders over a potential broken neck to return to battle and help his mates win the war with Argentina, which came to an end on June 14, 1982.

In total 904 people died in the dispute over the British Overseas Territory, including 255 British military personnel. But Cpl Aston insists he and his troops were right to fight for the group of islands some 8,700 miles away as he hit out at anyone calling it an "unjust" war.
