The Ministry of Defence paid out a staggering £709,000 to a member of the Armed Forces who was bullied so badly they suffered psychological problems.Thought to be a record payout by the UK military it is many hundreds of thousands of pounds more than the amount awarded to some troops crippled on the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan.

Another service member who complained about harassment and bullying by senior troops was also left with psychological problems and received £411,000 from the MoD.The payouts are believed to be the biggest-ever bullying settlements from the MoD where its regime and training programme have been found liable for the mental health problems of service personnel.
