Sir Mike Jackson warns over military cuts
Defence force personnel cuts may put the UK's future military capability at risk, a former army chief has warned.
Some 930 RAF and 920 army members were on Thursday being told they were being made redundant - 750 compulsorily - as part of 22,000 post closures by 2015.
Gen Sir Mike Jackson said getting resources and commitments into balance would likely be "quite a challenge".
Defence Secretary Liam Fox maintains that the cuts will allow the UK's defence capability to grow later in the decade.
