Maintence Concerns At RAF Brize Norton

The Ministry of Defence's network of military bases and depots have been described as "crumbling".

Watchdog, the National Audit Office has found they've deteriorated so badly it risks affecting the operational readiness of the armed forces. The problems include the fuels infrastructure at Oxfordshire's RAF Brize Norton - home of the air-to-air refueling fleet. It had to be shut down for safety reasons and a temporary facility installed because of lack of maintenance. The MoD spends £4.8 billion on the estate which - at 424,000 hectares - accounts for 1.8% of the total UK land mass.
