Earlier this year, more than 40 members testified for 250 hours as part of the investigation, describing the aerobatic team as “toxic”.

The alleged victims were told that if they spoke they would be sent home or expelled from the RAF.

It has been claimed that bosses have ignored complaints for years in order to protect the reputations of those seen as “untouchable”.

The survey recommended a number of measures to improve behaviors and culture within the Red Arrows.
