Catterick Medics Tackle Ebola Crisis

Oct 21, 2014, 12:03 PM, Richmondshire District, North Yorkshire, England

Army medics from Catterick Garrison have deployed to Sierra Leone to help combat the spread of the deadly Ebola virus.

They departed from RAF Brize Norton on Tuesday morning and will join colleagues from 22 Field Hospital to prevent further outbreaks. The measure is part of a £125 million aid package from Britain.

The second in command of 5 Armoured Medical Regiment, Major Mike Taylor has been telling Chris Kaye about the number of personnel involved, how long they will be gone for and what their role will be.
