Armed forces to receive redundancy notices

Cuts being made to the Armed Forces will see 930 RAF and 920 Army personnel told they are being made redundant.

It is the first phase of armed forces job cuts announced in the strategic defence and security review.

The armed forces are looking to shed 22,000 posts over the next four years - more than half through redundancies.

Jonathan Beale reports.
