Deepcut barracks
Cost cuts leading to a dangerously slack army training regime at the notorious Deepcut barracks may lie behind the deaths of four army recruits at the base, Newsnight has learned. In an exclusive interview we heard the concerns of the man who used to run the training programme at the base.
