Some 1,500 personnel are to lose their jobs in the armed forces' fourth and final round of redundancies as part of defence cuts announced in 2010.

Defence Secretary Philip Hammond said on Thursday that 1,425 will come from the Army, 70 from the RAF and 10 from the Royal Navy.

Speaking to BBC Breakfast, Falklands War veteran Simon Weston said that the cuts were "having a terrible impact on recruitment" and that "trust has been lost".
