The leader of Waveney District Council, Cllr Colin Law, said he was shocked at the news that Lowestoft Air Show was to end.
I am shocked to hear the announcement from the Air Show Organising Committee and it would be a very great shame if the event was to be cancelled.
However I know that work will continue to save the event and I personally believe that no stone will be left unturned by Paul Bayfield and his team.
This is one of the town's great events and I imagine it will not disappear without a very great struggle
