A soldier from York facing charges of desertion for refusing to return to Afghanistan has been arrested and charged with five further offences.

It's understood they're related to Lance Corporal Joe Glenton taking part in a protest in London last month against the continued presence of British troops in
Afghanistan.

The Stop the War Coalition claims the new charges carry a maximum of 10 years imprisonment.
