A third army reserve soldier has died following injuries sustained in a training exercise in the Brecon Beacons, the Ministry of Defence said tonight.
A statement said:
– Ministry of Defence
It is with great sadness that we can confirm that a third army reserve soldier injured during a training exercise in the Brecon Beacons has died of his injuries.
The family have asked for a period of grace before he is named and request that this is respected by the media.
Extreme heat was thought to have been a possible cause of the injuries sustained by the soldiers on 13th July.
