Soldier treatment wait time in Wales denied

Claims that soldiers wait longer for treatment in Wales than elsewhere in the UK have been denied by the Welsh government.

It comes after the Sun on Sunday reported the armed forces' most senior medical officer wants wounded soldiers to be moved to England for treatment.

It has led to calls for the UK surgeon general to explain more in the Senedd.

The UK defence secretary's spokesman also told BBC Wales soldiers should be moved if they need to get treatment.

Daniel Davies reports.
