RAF leaks: ‘Artificially inflated’ diversity figures used to meet govt targets

Sky News published this video item, entitled “RAF leaks: ‘Artificially inflated’ diversity figures used to meet govt targets” – below is their description.

It’s also alleged that RAF recruitment officers were directed to prioritise the placement of women and ethnic minorities on training courses last year.
