British Army troops have been "building bridges" with their French counterparts in a small Dorset village.

Reservists and French Paratroopers are training for rapid deployment operations in Wyke Regis.

They're learning how to assess and construct bridge crossings in fast flowing water with wide gaps.

The technique is typically used in disaster relief operations and during war fighting by rapid response teams.
