An air show which was postponed due to counter-terrorism costs will go ahead next year, organisers have confirmed.

Huge crowds

Council leader Graham Plant said the 2018 show was going to be an «important» event for the town.

«We look forward to the spectacle of aeroplanes wowing huge crowds on the seafront,» he said.

The Wildcats Aerobatics team has been lined up to take part in the event, with further announcements expected at a later date.
