RAF Marham said its F-35 Lightnings would be carrying out "essential night time flying training" tonight and tomorrow.

Details of where the aircraft would be carrying out sorties have not been revealed.

But a notice to residents posted on social media warned aircraft would be active until 11.45pm.

Lightinings have replaced the Tornado as the air force's main strike aircraft.
