    BBC Radio Lincolnshire

    Pretty much every air cadet has dreamt of flying with the Red Arrows, one that for most will be a very long way from happening. 

    However for these nine teenagers that dream has come true.

    They've earned the chance to fly with the world renowned air acrobatics team on a 30 minute journey to RAF Fairford in Gloucestershire for the 75th anniversary of the RAF Cadets.

    Its only the second time in their history that cadets have flown with the Reds.

    These nine are all bursting with excitement if not a little nervous but of course had time for a quick selfie before the flight began.

  20. Steel firm gives permanent roles to agency staff

    Amanda White

    BBC East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire

    There are renewed calls for government support as British Steel announces it's taking on 80 new employees at its site in Scunthorpe. 

    The company which took over the steel works last month says the move will further strengthen the workforce by making current agency workers permanent. 

    Paul McBean from the Community Union at the Steelworks says "it's a good development that's raised morale but they want a sign of commitment from the government."
