Thousands of people were left disappointed after the Red Arrows could not do the planned Southampton flypast due to poor weather.

They were due to display over Queen Mary 2 as part of her 175th anniversary celebrations.

They managed to take to the air from Bournemouth but sea fog above the Isle of Wight meant they couldn't carry out the flypast as planned.

A spokesman for the Red Arrows said he "could not believe the change in the weather" from yesterday.

He said it was the third display in three weeks they had been forced to cancel and apologised to the large crowds who had gathered to watch the display.

Queen Mary 2 will leave as planned tonight to recreate Cunard's first ever Transatlantic crossing to Canada.

Police say scale of Operation Stack 'unprecedented'

Police say they are doing all they can to clear the backlog of freight traffic being held on the M20 due to industrial action in Calais.

Kent Police implemented Phase 4 of Operation Stack which has caused some traffic to overspill into small roads and villages.

Thousands of lorry drivers have parked on the M20 in Kent for a fourth day as the partial closure of the Port of Calais crippled Channel crossings.

Port of Dover officials said they had no idea when the industrial action - the second strike by ferry workers in a week - would end.

Ch Supt Neil Jerome said Kent Police were trying to minimise disruption to residents.
