A group of young Muslim girls has been finding out about life in the Army.

From escaping from a revolving simulator that trains soldiers in how to get out of an overturned vehicle, to putting their teamwork into practice with challenging command tasks, they've been building bridges by facing down their fears.

The weekend was set up by 7th Infantry Brigade, based in Nottingham, whose soldiers have been reaching out to the Muslim community.

It's hoped it'll help the youngsters, ranging in age from 12-18, to understand more about what the Army does.

As it stands, there are only around 500 Muslim soldiers in the British Army. 

Weekends like this one could open up a new career to girls like these, who would never have considered it before.
