Soldier seeks better PTSD help for others

A soldier awarded the Military Cross has said he was sent to fight on the front line in Afghanistan despite showing serious signs of post-traumatic stress disorder.

Colour Sergeant Sean Jones, who is with the Princess of Wales's Royal Regiment in Kent, said it followed another military operation two years earlier.

He has called for better systems to be put in place to help other soldiers.
