UK soldier and veteran suicides 'outstrip Afghan deaths'

An investigation by the BBC's Panorama programme has found the number of suicides among soldiers and army veterans last year was much higher than previously reported.

It has found more than 50 cases of soldiers taking their own lives - more than were killed by the Taliban in Afghanistan in 2012. Toby Harnden reports.

Panorama's Broken by Battle is on Monday 15 July at 2100BST on BBC One
