Duchess of Cambridge delayed

The Duchess of Cambridge has been delayed en route to Grimsby today due to thick fog, a Palace official said. A spokesman said Kate would be an hour to 90 minutes late for her visit due to the weather affecting flying conditions.

She was due to arrive in the North East Lincolnshire town by helicopter for 11.35am. Crowds have already gathered to see Kate, who will tour Grimsby's fishing heritage centre and meet jobless young people on a Prince's Trust scheme.
