MoD unveils third round of Army job cuts

The Ministry of Defence announces a third round of Army job losses, with as many as 5,300 jobs to go, in its bid to plug a £38bn hole in the defence budget.

Redundancy notices will be issued on 18 June.

Any personnel preparing for, serving on, or recovering from operations on that date will not lose their jobs unless they have applied for redundancy.

Jonathan Beale reports.
