Norway is the latest country to join the UK-led programme to train Ukrainian forces.

More than 1,000 service personnel have deployed to run the programme, with the training taking place at Ministry of Defence sites across the UK.

The scheme is also being supported by Canada, Denmark, Finland, the Netherlands and Sweden.
