MP Chris Davies' anger over plan to shut Brecon barracks

The Ministry of Defence is to close the British Army's Welsh headquarters at Brecon, Powys, in 2027.

It comes in a shake-up of UK military buildings and resettling of regiments.

Brecon and Radnorshire Conservative MP Chris Davies condemned the closure, saying there had been a barracks in Brecon since 1805, home to troops who fought the Zulus at Rorke's Drift.

He said he would fight the decision.
