The RAF 100 Baton is being carried by a team of volunteers associated with the RAF to visit 100 RAF sites in 100 days.

Riders from the Pathfinder Motorcycle Club took the baton into the town centre before returning it to RAF Wyton.

The baton was also taken to the former RAF station at Brampton as part of the relay around the country.

The idea for the relay began as an orienteering challenge and each baton carrier was just given a start and end point and had to work out the rest of the route themselves.

RAF personnel, cadets, veterans and members of its sporting associations took part, with the baton being carried by boat, parachute, horseback and power kite.
