Ministry of Defence name soldier who died in Brecon

The Ministry of Defence has named one of the two army reservists who died in the Brecon Beacons on a training exercise over the weekend. He was Lance Corporal Craig Roberts. He was originally from the Penrhyn Bay area near Llandudno and working as a teacher in London.

It's thought that he and another, still unnamed soldier who died, were taking part in a selection process for the territorial army section of the SAS.

Investigations have been continuing into the deaths during the day, as Hannah Thomas reports.
