The participation of the Red Arrows in Guernsey's annual air display remains uncertain following a fatal crash.

Alan Brunger, the president of the Royal Air Forces Association in Guernsey, said he was yet to speak to the team regarding their participation.

Mr Brunger said: "It is impossible to say whether or not the Red Arrows will be here."

He said if the Red Arrows team was available, there would be a tribute to the pilot who died in the crash.

Flt Lt Jon Egging's Hawk T1 aircraft crashed close to Bournemouth Airport on 20 August.

The Royal Air Force flying team has traditionally taken part in the annual Battle of Britain display in Guernsey, which takes place over the islands in September.
