Ex-squaddie takes MOD for £620,000
An ex-soldier has been awarded £620,000 damages from the Ministry of Defence for stress suffered while on duty.

Malcolm New, from Llandudno, claimed at the High Court that the MoD failed to identify and treat his post traumatic stress disorder.

The former Royal Welch Fusilier said he was exposed to repeated stress during five tours in Northern Ireland.

Mr New, 46, is believed to be the first to receive an award of this kind. The MoD had disputed the claim.


Good on him. Bleed the fuckers dry.
