The three day event, held at RAF Cosford in Shropshire, was hosted by last year's winners the British Transport Police, and was entitled 'Cadets United' which sought to celebrate the diverse backgrounds of the many young people who attended the event.

Cadets took part in a number of physical and mental challenges, including an obstacle course, bleep test, an investigative challenge and a military challenge.

The event finished with a formal parade and presentation for this year's winners, Police Scotland's Dunfermline cadets (pictured above).

The VPC National team thanks the BTP for hosting such a hugely successful and enjoyable event.

Many congratulations to the cadets from Police Scotland, who will host the event in 2018, and to everyone else who took part and helped make it such a competitive, positive and fun weekend.

We look forward to next year's event in Scotland.
