Troops fail spot drug test

In the past six months, more than 60 soldiers have tested positive for narcotics abuse or have been found in possession at the Green Howards’ Beachley Barracks near Chepstow, Monmouthshire.

The 317-year-old infantry regiment will have lost an entire platoon to drugs abuse since last summer. It deploys to Bosnia on a six-month tour in a few weeks.
