An RAF reconnaissance aircraft from Norfolk has captured aerial images of the floods in the Thames Valley.
The deployment of the Tornado GR4 from RAF Marham has produced detailed imagery which it is hoped will assist the planning and co-ordination of relief efforts.
The aircraft, operated by 31 Squadron, is equipped with the highly versatile Raptor - Reconnaissance Air Pod for Tornado - which enables it to gather sophisticated, high-resolution imagery.
The imagery, now being processed and evaluated by analysts at Marham, will be passed to civilian authorities
The family of an airman killed in a collision outside Newmarket in Suffolk have paid tribute to him.
Staff Sgt Anderson Johnson was stationed at RAF Mildenhall with the 100th Civil Engineer Squadron. The 24-year-old from Texas was killed when his car crashed into a tree at about 2am on July 28.
In a statement his family said he had a smile "like the sun". They said "his laughter was contagious and his cheek bones reached the clouds... He was a wonderful husband, son, brother, family member... We want to thank all of you for taking care of him and loving him while he was with you."
Johnson is survived by his wife, Markeah Johnson, his parents, Anderson Johnson III and Margarita Tedder, and his siblings Tashica Johnson and Dominque Tedder.
The RAF search and rescue helicopters flying out of Wattisham airfield in Suffolk have helped to save countless lives.
But from 2015 they will be no more. Instead a private firm will operate the service and the nearest base will be Kent.
The Government's signed a £1.6 billion deal, ending 70 years of search and rescue run by the RAF and Royal Navy and has handed the contract to the US based Bristow Group.
But as the coastguard stations at Great Yarmouth in Norfolk and Walton on the Naze in Essex both prepare for closure, there are concerns the move to relocate air support could leave our coastline vulnerable.
Transport minister Stephen Hammond has defended the Government's decision to privatise search and rescue operations currently carried out by the RAF.
The region's only search and rescue helicopter base - at Wattisham in Suffolk - is to be axed after the service was privatised.
Britain's search-and-rescue helicopter service, which employs the Duke of Cambridge, is to be run by Bristow Helicopters, the Government announced today.
The award of the £1.6 billion deal ends 70 years of a service run by the RAF and Royal Navy squadrons.
It also spells the end of the use of Sea King helicopters - flown by William - in search-and-rescue (SAR) work.
Under the new contract, 22 state-of-the-art helicopters will operate from 10 locations around the UK.
The region is to lose its only air sea rescue base as part of a radical reshuffle of the service.
The base at Wattisham in Suffolk has been home to 2 RAF Sea King helicopters covering the East coast.
Now the private firm Bristow is to take over the service from the armed forces, and the Wattisham operation will move to Manston in Kent.
