    Defence chiefs have banned ITN from “embedding” its reporters with troops in combat zones in a row over its coverage of the medical treatment of troops.

    Ministry of Defence sources confirmed that they had suspended co-operation with ITN until it offered a “satisfactory” explanation.

    The MoD has written to the news organisation warning that it could take the issue to an industry watchdog, or that there might be legal action over “invasion of privacy” of one wounded soldier.

    The MoD was responding to reports by ITN for ITV News about the medical treatment of wounded personnel flown back to an NHS hospital in the UK.
