The number of Army reservists in our region is likely to increase following a government announcement today on the future of the army.

The Territorial Army will grow by 10 thousand over the next five years and members will get military pensions and healthcare benefits.

It is part of a long term plan to cut the size of the regular army and use more volunteers.
