Rifles soldier Joshua Hoole dies after Army fitness test in Brecon

 

A soldier who died while training in Brecon, south Wales, had just finished an eight-mile fitness test, the Ministry of Defence has said.

 

Cpl Joshua Hoole, 26, of Ecclefechan, near Lockerbie, died during pre-course training for the Platoon Sergeants' Battle Course.

 

Ambulances were called to Dering Lines infantry training centre in Brecon shortly before 09:00 BST on Tuesday.

 

The MoD said he collapsed after arriving back at the barracks.

 

Cpl Hoole was serving in the Rifles regiment at ITC Catterick. The cause of his death is not yet known and police are investigating.

 

An MoD spokesman said: "It was a two-week course and they were on day two.

 

"They all did the annual fitness test which is an eight-mile route carrying 25kg in two hours. No-one can do the route in less than one hour [and] 50 minutes.

 

"The annual fitness test is the first thing you do. This test gets done all across the infantry and is not supposed to be taxing."
