One of the world’s premier aerobatic display teams has cut short its display at Weston Air Festival this afternoon (Sunday) due to bad weather.
The RAF Red Arrows were forced to stop their performance early due to the weather.
The team flew into Weston from Cardiff this morning with its distinctive red Hawk fast-jets due to wow the thousands of spectators who descended onto the seafront.
Event organisers have said air displays will 'continue as much as possible' this afternoon, with the Chinook set to take to the skies.
The Armed Forces Village, based on the Beach Lawns off Marine Parade, remains open until 6pm.
A Weston Air Festival spokesman said: "Unfortunately the RAF Red Arrows have had to curtail their display.
"It was incredible to welcome them to Weston and to see their short display.
