Southport Air Show 2017

A fantastic start to the Southport Air Show 2017 took place on Friday, 15 September 2017, with a stunning night flying event that started with The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, flying with the setting sun behind... Then The Blades buzzed over, followed by a display by the Tigers Free Fall Team. Next up was the amazing Typhoon, or better known as the Eurofighter. Then came the Fireflies Aerobatic Team's display, as they painted the sky with lots of colours... The flying was ended by the O'Brien's Flying Circus (Otto) helicopter display... But even though Blackpool was having a blast in the background, Southport had to finish its night with an even bigger blast, thanks to Bright Sparks Firework Display Team. This was the 1st time the show has done this and even though numbers were not massive, those who did attend will agree that this new addition, can grow into something amazing... Full coverage of the Southport Air Show will be in next weeks Southport and Mersey Reporter. Please do let us know what you thought of the event, via sending an email to our main newsroom address:-

UK Terror Threat increased to "Critical"

UK Terror Threat increased to "Critical," the highest level, as Police continue the hunt for the person behind the London Tube bombing, within South West London. We are told that so-called 'Islamic State' is being reported to have said that it was behind the attack. The attack happened, on Friday, 15 September 2017, at around 8:20am, injuring 29 people. The device was detonated at Parsons Green Station, London, UK, on an Eastbound District Line Tube Train, heading from Wimbledon. Now the UK Prime Minister, Theresa May, has spoken to US President Donald Trump, convey his sympathies for those injured in the terrorist attack, the White House said. Prime Minister, Theresa May has said that it was not helpful to "speculate" on an ongoing investigation and that the public will see more Armed Police on the UK's transport network and on the streets, providing extra protection.
