Pte Lee Clegg, the paratrooper controversially released after serving just three years of a life sentence for the murder of a joyrider in Belfast, is to be allowed to remain in the Army, it was revealed last night.

An Army Board made the decision because of the "exceptional circumstances" of his conviction and sentence, though he may not stay in the Parachute Regiment.

A decision on which unit the 26-year-old soldier, who is currently on leave, will serve with will be made after retraining at Catterick, North Yorkshire..
