Spitfires take to skies in Battle of Britain memorial flight

Twelve Spitfires took to the skies to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain.

The World War Two fighter planes left Humberside Airport at 16:00 BST and soared over several regions, including Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and the East Midlands.

The flypast marks the Royal Air Force's success in thwarting a German attack on British air space on 13 August, 1940, as Victoria Holland reports.
