Army Captain died in Brecon exercise earlier this year

Two servicemen who died on a routine training exercise yesterday are not the first military personnel to die on exercise in the Brecon Beacons this year.

An Army Captain with the Royal Signals Regiment died in January while taking part in an exercise on Corn Du Mountain.

Capt Rob Carnegie was taking part in a gruelling march, which is part of the selection process for the Army's Special Forces Unit when he collapsed and died.
