Accommodation blocks opened earlier this year at Alexander Barracks
An Army recruit has died after being found hanging at a barracks, police have confirmed.
The 29-year-old man, who has not been named, died despite attempts by paramedics to resuscitate him just before 0800 BST on Sunday.
It happened at the Alexander Barracks at Pirbright Army camp, Surrey.
Surrey Police have launched an investigation and a post-mortem examination will take place later. Next of kin have been informed.
A Ministry of Defence spokesman said: "It is with deep sadness that the MoD confirms the death of a new recruit at Pirbright Training Centre in Surrey.
"Our thoughts and sympathies are with the deceased individual's family and friends at this difficult time.
"Surrey Police are conducting an investigation so it would not be appropriate to comment further at this stage."
Accommodation blocks designed to offer modern, comfortable facilities for new recruits opened earlier this year at Alexander Barracks.
As part of the Army's efforts to improve conditions for new recruits, the 12-man dormitory-style rooms are partitioned into four areas to provide a degree of privacy.
A "duty of care" office and a member of training staff is located on each floor.
Specific policies to improve the mental health of the recruits and to identify and prevent bullying have been in place for some time at the barracks.
A spokeswoman for Surrey Police said: "The Ministry of Defence is fully co-operating with the inquiries being made by police."
