AIR cadets from Spalding earned themselves a podium place after competing in a sprint orienteering competition against serving Royal Air Force athletes.

Cadet Sgt Kevin Kirk (17), Luke Fortune (15) and Nick Fletcher (17) were part of the three-man relay team from the 1406 Squadron which powered through to a second place in the Royal Air Force Sprint Orienteering Championships at RAF College, Cranwell.

The competition included ten teams, with the majority being serving RAF athletes who have inter-service competition experience.

Civilian instructor Jon Hilton said: “1406 Squadron has a great cadet interest in orienteering and some of the cadet and team results are just outstanding, something to be really proud of.”
