The famous Red Arrows are set to take to the skies over Norfolk again this week as they travel to one of the region's biggest airshows.

The Clacton Airshow is kicking off in Essex on Thursday for its 30th year, featuring a range of "dynamic" aerial displays and attractions that will include the world-renowned winged troupe.

Spread across two days, the Red Arrows will join the event on Thursday afternoon, setting off from RAF Marham at 4.17pm before heading south.

But they will return to Marham later in the evening, scheduled to pass over Watton at 5.04pm and back to base at 5.06pm.
