See the Army's new £6m 'Terrier' vehicle in action

The Army has been showing off its newest and most advanced vehicle - a remote-controlled armoured digger.

Each 'Terrier' costs six million pounds to build, and weighs as much as 15 transit vans.

The vehicles are driven by using a video game-style controller, which means soldiers can carry out a number of tasks a safe distance away.

Our Correspondent, Martin Dowse, has been to Bovington Camp in Dorset to see 'The Terrier' in action.

The interviewees are: Colonel Simon Hulme, Assistant Director, Military Engineering Capability; and David Bond from BAE Systems.
