1,400 UK soldiers 'made redundant'

About 1,400 soldiers are to lose their jobs in the Army's fourth and final round of redundancies as part of defence cuts announced in the 2010.

The defence secretary will announce the details of units affected to MPs later.

Soldiers currently serving or about to serve in Afghanistan will be exempt, the Ministry of Defence said.
