Noble Solicitors speaks out over the ‘violent risk’ after military tours

Noble Solicitors speaks out over the ‘violent risk’ after military tours

Younger members of the armed forces returning from duty are more likely to commit violent offences than the rest of the population, a study suggests.

Researchers analysed data from nearly 14,000 UK service personnel who had served in wars in Iraq or Afghanistan.

They highlighted a particular issue in younger men and those who had combat roles or had a traumatic experience.

The results in the Lancet medical journal come 10 years after the start of the war in Iraq.

The Ministry of Defence, which funded the study, said it was committed to improving services and trying to break the stigma around mental health by getting people in the armed forces and veterans to talk about their problems.

David Noble, Director at Noble Solicitors says “I have seen first-hand the effects of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) can have on soldiers returning from duty. I have worked with the armed forces for many years defending service personnel from motoring offences up to court martial work. I feel PTSD has a lot of stigma attached to it and is misunderstood especially within the community. It is sad to see soldiers who have fought for our country not receiving the correct treatment they deserve and the support in the community where they live. We have a specialist department who work with clients in hospital and in the community who suffer from this and other mental health related issues so if you are worried and need advice please feel free to contact us.

If you have been arrested for a criminal offence and work within the armed forces please contact Noble Solicitors. We are one of the leading criminal defence solicitors with offices in Bedfordshire, Northamptonshire and London, we are here to fight for you. We can offer you 24 hour free police station representation on 07000 81 82 83.”
