A spokesperson for the Red Arrows said: 'Today's weather has prevented the team launching to make a Military Event Flypast and therefore they have remained at Scampton.

'They will conduct the remaining displays today from Scampton and the Military Event Display tomorrow from Scampton before positioning to Newcastle.'
