Special flight to the Northern Lights from Humberside

The first flight from Humberside Airport to see the Northern Lights has been so successful, that it could become an annual event.

The three hour trip travelled north over Scotland in search of the lights, which are caused by solar wind - a flow of charged particles from the sun travelling to Earth and hitting the atmosphere at its thinnest point causing a brightly coloured display.

Sarah Cruddas joined passengers on the flight.
