Formula One fans who missed a day of action at this year's British Grand Prix have until Friday to claim a refund from Silverstone.

Weeks of heavy rain flooded campsites and car parks at the Northamptonshire circuit last month.

As a result organisers asked people to stay away on some of the qualifying days.

Between 20,000 and 30,000 fans were affected, though 297,000 people still attended despite the awful conditions.

Anyone wanting a refund should visit the Silverstone website.
