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.

Colonel Richard Kemp, a retired commander who has trained on the Beacons throughout his career, told BBC Breakfast British soldiers have to train to be able to fight in hot weather.
