Lancashire water crisis takes toll on families

First air show since Shoreham disaster starts today

As families of the victims of Shoreham continue to wait for news of their loved ones, the first UK air show since the disaster prepares to get underway at Clacton in Essex today.

Organisers insist the event will go ahead as normal - with all of the stunts taking place in the sky over the sea so they're not affected by the new civil aviation restrictions.

However they say public safety is the priority at the show, which is due to attract 200,000 people over the next two days.

Another air show at Durham Tees Valley on Saturday has been cancelled.
