Covid: Army helps under pressure Welsh Ambulance Service

The British Army has stepped in to help paramedics across Wales after an "extraordinary" request from medical chiefs.

About 90 Royal Logistic Corps and the Royal Army Medical Corps soldiers have been deployed to help deal with the growing pressures of Covid-19.

Officer Commanding Maj Dan Cornwell said: "This is absolutely the reason for the army - protect our people, protect our country and keep everyone safe."
