800 British troops from across the country have been training members of the Kazakhstan army in order to help them become United Nations peacekeepers.

The exercise took place on Stanford Training Area and involved British troops and forces from Kazakhstan, the US, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan.

This is the first time Exercise Steppe Eagle has taken place in the UK and featured soldiers from 1st Battalion The Rifles.
