HUNDREDS of air cadets marched through Doncaster to mark 70 years of the Air Training Corps in the area.

A total of 450 ATC cadets and staff from across South and West Yorkshire paraded through the borough to mark the anniversary.

There were 18 squadrons passing by the Mansion House on their way to a celebratory service in the Minster of St George.

And as the proud cadets marched past the Mansion House, Deputy Civic Mayor Coun Eva Hughes, elected mayor Peter Davies and Lord Lieutenant David Moody took the salute.

Also taking part at the event was Anthony Cooper, Deputy Lord Lieutenant and Group Captain Alan Tolhurst, who was the last Commanding Officer at RAF Finningley before it closed in 1996.

Officers from the Air Training Corps and Air Force Veterans from all conflicts joined them.

The streets were lined by members of the public watching the parade.
