Keighley cadets secretary Corinne Metcalfe said: “We are proud to report that our cadets came a very respectable third out of 16 in the competition.

“Four of our cadets won the Somerset medal for being in the top eight highest scorers, and also Sgt Rosie Clarke was awarded the Tyro Award for best coach.”

The medal winners were Lance Corporal Tom Addyman, MC2 Joe Judson, Sgt MC Kevin Da Silva and MC Natasha Zera.
