Admirals Urge Rethink on Harrier and Ark Royal Cuts

A group of former Royal Navy admirals has called for the decision to scrap the aircraft carrier Ark Royal and the fleet of Harrier jets to be reversed.

In a letter to the Times the group says defence cuts will leave the “newly valuable” Falkland Islands open to attack and calls the plan to axe the Harrier fleet “financially perverse”.

But ministers insist the UK will still be able to defend the Falklands.
