Red Arrows blow to Carnival

Red Arrows will be in Clacton Credit: PA

The Red Arrows won't be flying at Cromer Carnival this year, it has been announced.

The carnival takes place in August and clashes with the Eastbourne International Air Show. Tony Shipp, one of the Carnival organisers said they were disappointed not to have the display team at the event.

"The Red Arrows do try to give everyone a fair crack but we're disappointed not to have them. We are trying to get another aerial display, and we should hear about this later this week."

Fans of the famous airobatics team should not be downhearted as they will be in the region this year - they'll be flying at the Clacton Air Show on August 21st and 23rd.
