Two members of the British Army are to appear at military court this month, relating to an attack on another soldier.

One of the troops is charged with carrying out a racially-motivated attack on Lance Corporal Bernard Mongan.

The charges are in relation to an attack on LCpl Mongan in 2018 outside a Catterick nightclub.

LCpl Mongan, originally from Ireland, was found dead at his barracks at the start of this year, after being missing for three weeks.

His death is also being investigated by the Army.

One soldier is charged with racially aggravated grievous bodily harm, while the other service member is charged with grievous bodily harm and actual bodily harm.

A British Army spokesman said: "We can confirm that one soldier has been charged with racially aggravated grievous bodily harm and actual bodily harm, and another soldier has been charged with grievous bodily harm and actual bodily harm.

"It would be inappropriate to comment further at this time."
