Defence secretary doesn't deny cuts to Royal Marines

Costs in the armed forces are running so high that according to the Times newspaper, there could be a £10bn shortfall. The Defence Secretary, Sir Michael Fallon, says the MoD has already committed to £1bn in savings a year.

He refused on the Today programme to be drawn on whether the Royal Marines would be cut in order to achieve efficiency savings.
