Efforts are being made to avoid travel chaos in Falmouth as 30,000 revellers are expected to pack the streets to see the Red Arrows.

Last year hundreds of passengers ended up stranded at Truro railway station because of overcrowded trains.

Falmouth Week organisers want people to arrive early and leave late to avoid congestion.

John Ratchford from the travel company First Great Western said there would be extra buses on standby later.

Truro railway station manager, Sarah Rogers, said: "We are prepared for the Red Arrows. I am confident we will be able to deal with that admirably."

The RAF's aerobatic team of Hawk jets is one of the highlights of the week-long events in the Cornish town.
