A SOLDIER from Cupar serving in Afghanistan has won an award at Dundee College.

Studying on a part-time basis, Calum Ferguson scooped the CIPD Mid Scotland Branch prize for management.

Calum is currently based at Camp Bastion and could not attend the ceremony, so the award was accepted on his behalf by his daughter Kate, who is also a student at the college.

When the reason why Kate was on stage was announced, the audience of students, their families and friends, prize sponsors and college staff raised the roof in appreciation of her dad.
