We hear from some of those in the forces helping the UK’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.
Former Chief of the Defence Staff Lord Richards tells us the Army’s “perfect” to help build a giant new hospital in London — and remembers his experiences of being drafted in to help in past civil emergencies.
