A £250m training college is to be built for the Armed Forces, Defence Minister Andrew Murrison has announced. The Defence College of Logistics, Policing and Administration in Worthy Down, Hampshire, will focus on services such as catering, supply, transport and military human resources.

It will provide living accommodation for up to 2,000 students and staff. Dr Murrison described it as a place where people from all three military services can 'live and learn'. Construction is to begin in late 2014 and is expected to be completed by late 2018.
