Large numbers of troops may be sent to the Trident base at Faslane, near Glasgow.

The exercise will involve 1,300 commandos taking part in a "a large scale amphibious assault on a beach in Luce Bay".

Commodore Jerry Kyd, who will lead the Royal Navy Task Group from sea on HMS Bulwark, said: "Joint Warrior provides excellent training within a complex political-military scenario."

Air Vice-Marshal Stuart Atha said that he hopes the exercise will provide "confidence that the RAF is ready to deploy wherever and whenever required to defend our sovereign territory and national interests."

The latest research suggests that almost 400 new jobs will become available every week as the vast majority of companies are confident about their ability to expand.
