Pictures: Proposals for RAF memorial in Lincolnshire
The first in a series of public exhibitions is being held today to help select the design of a historic memorial to commemorate RAF Bomber Command crew stationed in Lincolnshire during World War II.
A fund has been set up to help pay for a memorial in recognition of the Command's aircrew who sacrificed their lives. In total, over 25,000 men lost their lives flying from Lincolnshire for the Bomber Command.

The Olympic torch relay begins today at Land's End, but already a Doncaster student has tried out the facilities at the Olympic Stadium in London.
19-year old Jacob Clark from Bessacarr took part in a preparation event ahead of this summer's Games as part of the British Universities College of Sport.
The event was run like a mini Olympics, featuring athletics, basketball and other sports.
Jacob took part in the 1500 metre 4x4 relay representing Leeds University.
“My events took place on the Saturday night, it was a fantastic atmosphere with around 40,000 people in the crowd.
“This is a great time for sport and everyone in Doncaster is excited about seeing the Olympic torch pass through the borough on 26 June.”
