The widow of a Red Arrows pilot who died in a crash at an air show, is taking part in a charity walk in the Peak District later.

Jon Egging died when his jet crashed after a display at the Bournemouth Air Show in 2011. His wife Emma, set up a trust in his memory, to help teenagers to fulfil their potential.

Today she and a group of students from Lincoln will be tacking Derbyshire's highest peak to raise money for the Trust.
