  7. Throckmorton air show: "Safety a priority" says regulator

    The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) says an "extensive review of air show safety" was carried out following the accident at the Shoreham Air Show last year, and warns "a number of 2016 air shows will not go ahead unless they adopt the new safety measures".

    Organisers of this year's Throckmorton Airshow say they will have to cancel the event if they face an additional fee of £10,000 for the extra checks.

    The CAA has introduced enhanced risk assessments and tougher checks and training requirements for pilots and display directors.

    With plans to build a £150,000 statue of former Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin in his hometown of Bewdley, it's easy to forget there's already a memorial to him near Stourport-on-Severn 

    The small memorial plinth is on the B4196 at The Burf. Though it's beautifully maintained, you could easily drive past it.
