The Royal Air Force has been given the 'freedom' of a Cumbrian town.

Townsfolk handed over the freedom of Brampton to officers from the RAF at a ceremony in the centre of the town.

The honour was given to the RAF to mark the close relationship the community has with the nearby RAF Spadeadam training facility.

RAF Spadeadam Station Commander, Wing Commander Ruari Henderson-Begg says it's been a proud moment.
