Personnel from RAF Wittering were due to exercise their freedom of the Lincolnshire town on Thursday May 25th.

Station spokesman Ed Palmer said: "In consultation with Lincolnshire Police and in line with national police guidelines, RAF wittering has reluctantly decided to postpone the parade marking the freedom of Stamford tomorrow.
