Tens of thousands of visitors are expected to attend the Eastbourne air show over the next four days. The last two airworthy Lancaster bombers are this year's star attraction.

Borough councillor Carolyn Heaps said it was "business as usual", following a fire that destroyed part of the town's pier two weeks ago.

Piers Hopkirk spoke to Ms Heaps, commentator George Bacon and David Hills, of the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum.
