The widow of a Warwickshire Red Arrows pilot who died in a crash, has visited a school in Lincoln as part of her ongoing work for the Trust set up in his memory.

Emma Egging spoke to pupils at Priory Witham Academy, who are taking part in a fundraising event to raise money for the Trust for Jon Egging, who was born in Ufton and grew up in Southam.

The programme targets youngsters who have been underachieving at school, attempting to inspire and motivate them. Jon Egging, who was 33 and also known as 'Red 4', was killed when his plane came down two years ago.
