Heavy rain hit parts of Norfolk overnight and into the morning but organisers at the Holkham Country Fair say that they expect everything to go ahead as planned.

Nearly 40,000 people are expected to head to the event this weekend which will see a range of performances and displays, including opening with a parachute display by the Royal British Legion's Jump4Heroes team and concluding with a display by Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, the Red Arrows.

A spokesperson for the event said: 'Everything planned is set to go ahead as scheduled and we don't have any flooding or muddy patches here. We can even see some blue sky starting to emerge.'

On Thursday the Red Arrows cancelled an appearance at Norwich Airport due to poor weather conditions but their display over Holkham is still set to go ahead with the jets flying in from their home base in Scampton in Lincolnshire.
