An NHS domestic assistant has been pushed to her limit on an Army Reserve course.

Private Maegan Anderson (22) successfully completed the full-time four week summer challenge at Redford Barracks.

The former Beeslack Community High School pupil, who works for NHS Lothian, will now join 230 Squadron, 134 Scottish Transport Regiment for further training.

Keen on ice skating and skiing, the Bilston woman said: “I joined the Army Reserves for the challenge and to become fitter as well as to gain more qualifications – they will teach me how to drive HGV vehicles.”
