The first of the jets were due to fly across the Atlantic to their new home in Norfolk today.

Thousands were expected to turn out to see them. Farmers have set aside areas of land around the base for vantage points.

But RAF Marham has tweeted: 'We are aware that a number of people have come to view the arrival of the F-35 Lightning aircraft. Please be advised that it will not be arriving today (5th June), we will continue to post updates as they become available.'
