|A charity football match is being held at Lincoln United's ground in memory of a Red Arrows engineer who was killed in a crash.

Corporal Jonathan Bayliss died when the Hawk jet he was travelling in came down in Wales on March 20th. A Red Arrows team from 3 Squadron will take on a side made up of engineers from RAF Coningsby, where Corporal Bayliss used to be based.

The match was originally planned to go ahead on the day of the fatal crash but was postponed after the tragedy. The Ministry of Defence has confirmed that a full police and service investigation is underway into the accident.
