Two soldiers in the special forces have been charged with negligence over the deaths of three reservists during an SAS march in the Brecon Beacons.

Lance Corporal Edward Maher from Winchester and Lance Corporal Craig Roberts, suffered heat exhaustion during the 16 mile SAS exercise on the hottest day of 2013.

Corporal James Dunsby collapsed and died later.

A coroner ruled a catalogue of mistakes had played a part in their deaths.

The Service Prosecution Authority has confirmed a case will now be heard against two men in a military court.

The maximum sentence is two years detention.

Any decision to prosecute any personnel, veteran or serving, is made by the Service Prosecution Authority (SPA), an independent body."
