Major training exercise at RAF Waddington next week

RAF Waddington will host a routine major training exercise next week involving multiple civilian agencies.

The main activity, which is set to take place from 9am on Tuesday, September 25, will be contained within the RAF base itself, but it is expected that passers-by may see a greater number of military and civilian emergency service personnel in the area.

An RAF Waddington spokesperson said personnel are aiming to use this controlled exercise to test and prove their ability to cope, contain and resolve major incidents.

They added that disruption will be kept to a minimum and the training exercise is expected to finish at 3pm.
