UK military cuts 'will damage partnership with US'
Cuts to the UK's armed forces will limit the country's ability to be a major player on the world stage, a former US defence secretary has warned.
Robert Gates said the spending squeeze would mean the UK does not have "full spectrum capabilities" or the "ability to be a full partner" to the US.
The Ministry of Defence says Britain still has the fourth largest defence budget in the world.
