Ministry of Defence set for radical shake up

The Ministry of Defence will undergo a radical shake up which will leave it 'leaner, more efficient and more effective', according to the Defence Secretary Liam Fox.

He says cuts of up to 20 per cent could be made as part of the review of Britain's defence needs. The Shadow defence secretary Bob Ainsworth claimed the government was softening the public up for cuts that they opposed while in opposition.

Defence correspondent Jonathan Beale reports.
