Former Countdown presenter Carol Vorderman has paid tribute to the thousands of men who gave their lives in wartime when she launched a new Royal Air Force supporters club.

The TV presenter visited Lincolnshire to lend her support to the Official Royal Air Force Memorial Flight Club.

Miss Vorderman, was accompanied at RAF Coningsby by her boyfriend Graham Duff, a former Red Arrows Squadron Leader. The new RAF club will give supporters greater insight into the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, which includes the Spitfire, Hurricane and Dakota aircraft, and how it runs.

Members will receive a raft of information in a welcome pack, including a club yearbook, a visitor guide, and aircraft data sheets, and also be able to enter into ballots and win prizes, visit the flights and, in some cases, sit in the aeroplanes.
