Mayor: 'Brecon is devastated' by soldier deaths

Investigations are continuing into the deaths of two soldiers on a training exercise in the Brecon Beacons, Powys.

They were serving with the Territorial Army, the BBC understands.

A third soldier is in a serious condition after Saturday's incident, which is thought to have been linked to the hot weather.

Mayor of Brecon Matthew Dorrance said: "This news makes everybody in Brecon think of somebody they know, somebody they've met or somebody in their own family who served with the forces."
