At around 8.45am on Friday morning British and American aircraft will fly over the park where the World War Two plane crashed, killing 10 US servicemen.

Fine weather is forecast for the event and people planning to travel to the park to watch the spectacle are advised to arrive there well ahead of time.

The event is being broadcast live by BBC Breakfast from 6am and organisers say spectators should aim to arrive from around 7.15am.

Police and organisers are warning that traffic in the area could be heavier than usual with delays possible.
