It's the 30th anniversary of the use of the Vulcan bomber in the Falklands conflict.

Martin Withers was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross for his part in the Falklands. He is at Doncaster Robin Hood Airport this afternoon to mark the anniversary.

It's still unclear whether the Vulcan will be allowed to take to the skies for a test flight because of poor weather conditions
