Gurkhas to recruit women for first time

The Gurkhas are to allow women to join up for the first time, but only if they can carry 55lbs of sand uphill in a wicker basket. 
The regiment, which has been a part of the British Army for more than 200 years, will open to women next year and it is thought that the first recruits could be in the UK for training by 2020.
