AFTER leaked sex video of multiple paratroopers and a woman who was apparently ‘smuggled into’ into the barracks, an army whistleblower has revealed that this is ‘fairly common’.

UPDATE 1.21 pm (June 22) – In an exclusive interview with The Independenta former army recruitment worker revealed that army orgies are ‘fairly common’ after a sex video was leaked of a woman engaging in sexual acts with troops from the 16 Air Assault Brigade at Merville Barracks.

The woman, who is married to a man in the army and lives on a military estate, said that she had seen the leaked footage and described it as “extremely distressing and disturbing”.

“It is misogynistic,” she added. “It is an embarrassment to the army. It shows a serious lack of professionalism and decent human behaviour in general.”

She also described the videos as “degrading”.

She added: “I find raising children in this environment very scary. Among many men in the army, there is the assumption women are joining the army for sex, or at least they must expect that to happen if they do join.

ORIGINAL 1.07 pm (June 18) – The videos were taken at Merville Barracks in Colchester and show a woman engaged in sexual acts with troops from 16 Air Assault Brigade, as reported by Armed Forces Minister James Heappey has denounced the ‘sex videos’ as ‘disgraceful’.

Heappey has expressed anger and embarrassment about the footage, and has assured that he does not consider this to be acceptable behaviour, nor is it the norm throughout Army personnel. He claims it does not matter that the sex depicted has been justified as ‘consensual’; it does not portray a respectable image of Britain’s armed forces.

Speaking on behalf of the Army, he told ITV’s Peston “we want the nation’s brightest and best to serve in our armed forces and we want women serving in the armed forces to know that they’re serving in an environment where they are safe, where they are respected.”

The videos suggest a slippage in the expected high standards of behaviour from army personnel.

Heappey also told news sources that “anyone not maintaining these standards will be investigated and appropriate action will be taken against them.”

Further investigations into similar and related video footage involving Army personnel is being carried out by The Royal Military Police.
