One of the display acts for today’s Great Yarmouth Air Show has been forced to pull out due to mechanical issues.

The RAF Tutor was due to take to the air in the show’s 1pm to 2pm slot.

News of the cancellation comes as organsiers say 80,000 people attended yesterday’s first day.

Due to sunnier weather today it is expected there will be even more people attending, with visitors being told to get to the town early and take advantage of the park and ride system.

The Tutor is used for elementary flying training by the RAF and was due to be flown by Flt Lt Andy Sell.

The revised display times are:

13.00 Tigers parachute team

13.22 Long EZ

13.32 Rich Goodwin’s G-WIZ

13.45 Strikemaster

13.55 Autogyro

14.05 Battle of Britain Memorial Flight hurri/spit

14.19 Bremont Great War Team

14.35 The Blades

15.00 RAF Red Arrows

15.30 Bronco

15.42 Wildcats Aerobatics

15.54 Catalina

16.06 Vampire Jets

16.20 AeroSuperBatics Wingwalkers

16.37 Spitfire
