IN the aftermath of the appalling Michael Eke affair, could I pay tribute to the members of the 1220 Squadron(March) ATC under the command of Flight

Lieutenant Kirsty Burnham, supported by adult officers Adrian Galloway and Colin Arnold and the parents of the cadets, for the dignified way they have handled what must have been a devastating blow to the confidence and morale of the entire unit.

Credit should also be paid to the civilian committee of the squadron under the chairmanship of Caroline Clarke for their stewardship of a very difficult situation. I understand it was the vigilance of this committee which first began the chain of events which was to result in Michael Eke's subsequent disgrace and downfall.

Although an extreme example, perhaps the Michael Eke saga is a timely reminder to all those in positions of authority, who may be involved in the many voluntary organisations in the area, to be vigilant in their duty of safeguarding public money.
