Tributes and mixed views about ban on vintage aircraft stunts at first airshow since Shoreham crash

The first air show in the region since the Shoreham disaster has been taking place at Dunsfold, in Surrey, today.

While hundreds of spectators stood in memory of those killed at Shoreham, there was a widely held opinion that despite the crash there was no need for any further restrictions on air displays. Our transport correspondent Mike Pearse reports.

The silence at the Wings and Wheels airshow in Dunsfold was just one of several memorial events held today to remember the victims of the Shoreham air crash on Saturday 22nd August.

Air crash victims remembered at Shoreham silence

Thousands of people observed a minute's silence today just after 1.20pm, exactly a week after a Hawker Hunter jet performing at the Shoreham Airshow crashed on the A27 in Sussex - causing the deaths of 11 people.

Local residents joined the families and friends of the victims, along with members of the emergency services, on the wooden bridge which has become a shrine of floral tributes to those who died. Richard Slee reports.

Other tributes have taken place today to remember all the victims of the air crash, including a balloon release by the friends of personal trainer Matt Jones at Littlehampton.

Full report: Kent Pride 2015, in "Margayte"

Hundreds of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people marched through Thanet today in a "Kent Pride" procession. There had been concern that the celebration of the LGBT community could be marred after anti-gay leaflets were posted throughout Margate ahead of the event. In the end though, all was fine, as David Johns reports.

He spoke to organiser Tony Bee, Andrew Bigginton from Kent Fire & Rescue Service, plus campaigner Peter Tatchell.
