People are being warned that is forbidden to fly drones or kites during the Great Yarmouth Air Show.

Mark and Christon, from Anglian Drones a group that promotes safe flying in East Anglia, have warned that the flying of a drone is an offence in No Fly Zones.

A statement from them said: “The latest high-tech consumer drones have built in systems to avoid flying in these areas, however a NOTAM is in place for the Great Yarmouth Airshow which means any type of unmanned aircraft, kite or parachute is temporarily restricted.

“Unfortunately with the increase of drone sales over the past two years, many people have no understanding of the drone code. “
