Women will be allowed to join UK Special Forces for the first time, removing the final barrier to women in Britain’s armed forces. Gavin Williamson has announced that all roles will now be open to both genders in the SAS and SBS.

Speaking at a military training exercise on Salisbury Plain, the defence secretary said: “Women have led the way with exemplary service in the armed forces for over 100 years, working in a variety of specialist and vital roles.

“So I am delighted that from today, for the first time in its history, our armed forces will be determined by ability alone and not gender.”
