Southend's air show under threat with council cutbacks

Southend Borough Council plans to cancel the Essex resort's air show in cutbacks to save £10.5m.

The air festival, one of the largest in Europe, started in 1986.

A short time after the budget cutbacks were announced a petition was started online to "save the air festival".
