A former British commander has stated "regret" over defending army kit, despite knowing it was inadequate.

Major Richard Streatfeild told BBC Radio 4's Today programme that admitting problems over equipment at the time would have "undermined" the army's operation in Afghanistan.

First broadcast on BBC Radio 4's Today programme on Monday 17 March.
