Actor Ross Kemp has told the BBC that he is concerned about the MOD cuts, in particular about not enough being done to help soldiers mentally when they return from combat.

Speaking to Radio 5 live's Richard Bacon, the Help For Heroes patron said there was an "invisible walking wounded" army in society.

As part of the government's strategic defence review, more than 4,000 armed forces personnel are being made redundant.
