RAF Lossiemouth 'guaranteed for up to 30 years'

The future of the Lossiemouth air base should be guaranteed for up to 30 years, the RAF has said.

Senior officers have revealed the timeline for the station's transition from home to the Tornado fighter bomber fleet to one of the UK's two bases for the new Typhoon aircraft.

RAF Lossiemouth was under threat two years ago.

However the Moray base was spared at the expense of RAF stations at Kinloss and Leuchars.

These are now to be home to the Army.
