The Royal Air Force will mark 75 years of life and work at its military base in St Athan today.

Military personnel of past and present will gather at the site in the Vale of Glamorgan to celebrate the anniversary.

There will be a church service followed by a parade of trainees and veterans who served from the 1950s onwards.

The event will also include a flypast and a drop by the RAF Falcons Parachute Display Team.
