Wear your uniforms, PM tells forces

The prime minister has said the public want to see armed forces members in their uniforms - after advice to conceal them in public was relaxed.

A defence source had told the BBC the advice was a "common sense" step during the Woolwich attack investigation.

But the advice was later relaxed following a review, said the MoD.

In a message to forces personnel, David Cameron said: "The British public love our armed forces; they love them being in the public eye."
