MoD denies wounded job cut plan

A leaked memo suggesting injured soldiers could lose their jobs has been dismissed by the Ministry of Defence.

The document, seen by the Daily Telegraph, suggests 2,500 wounded personnel could go as part of 16,500 Army job losses - up from 12,000.

Defence Secretary Philip Hammond said the memo, written by a junior army officer, was "incorrect".
