Weather grounds Southport Airshow

Southport Airshow has been cancelled because of heavy rain overnight.

The site adjacent to Southport beach has been flooded and organisers fear that more predicted bad weather would make conditions dangerous.

The first day of the weekend show, which is in its 19th year and attracts 150,000 visitors, went ahead on Saturday.

People who have bought tickets in advance will be given refunds.
