March of air cadets.

AIR CADETS will be travelling to Teesside to take part in a parade to mark the 67th anniversary of the Air Training Corps.

Around 160 cadets will take part in the event tomorrow in Middlesbrough town centre to mark the anniversary of the formation of the organisation on February 5, 1941.

Rob Birtram, the officer commanding Middlesbrough Air Cadets, said the parade is held in a different town each year and has not been to Middlesbrough since the 1970s.

"It's a really long-established organisation and we are proud to hold this event in Middlesbrough this year as it hasn't been in Middlesbrough for so long," he said.

The parade will assemble outside mima art gallery at 1pm and march off at 1.30pm.

It will go past Middlesbrough Register Office, on to Corporation Road, up to the town hall, where the salute will be taken, then on to Albert Road. The parade will then go into Grange Road and into All Saints Church for a service, starting at 2pm.

Police will close roads to allow the parade to pass.
