Gemma, how much of a disappointment has this been?


The Canadian Lancaster has travelled 3700 miles. But with 100 miles to go


a thunderstorm hit preventing the fly`past taking place. But many


people were happy to sleep off of the Lancasters together even if it


was just on the tarmac. `` were happy to witness the Tang Castor ``


witness the Lancaster together. Sometimes on the way to read you


could see at the Lancaster is underneath you.


To commemorate the wartime efforts and the lives lost the Canadian


Lancaster is set off for Lincolnshire. They stopped in a


slant last night. Back in Lincolnshire crowds had gathered


from early this morning. We were on our way to a wedding and we heard


about this. To see one is fantastic, to see two is out of this world. It


is once in a lifetime. At 11 o'clock the Lancaster was taken into


position. There have been false starts over the years to try to get


both aircraft together. Finally it has come together. But it was not to


be. The weather turned. EV Asian enthusiasts waited for news. ``


Aviation enthusiasts waited for news. We were waiting for so long.


40 minutes late their Canadian aircraft arrived. It is a momentous


day to have these aircraft together. I am disappointed that they have not


been able to fly together. But it is a very exciting day. It would have


been nice to see them fly together. But I am happy enough. The aircraft


were finally united on the runway. The historic flight is still to


come. The Canadian Lancaster needs to be


serviced after its long journey. The aircraft are now due to fly together


next week. There will be a number of events


where both aircraft will appeared together.


So there are still plenty of opportunities to see the aircraft


flying together. With three quarters of an inch


of rain falling in an hour it wasn't just today's historic fly


past which was affected. Flash flooding has caused damage to


homes and businesses in several places with Louth being


the worst affected. Our reporter Jill Archbold has spent


the afternoon there A torrential downpour that didn't


last more than half an hour which overwhelmed this Lincolnshire


market town. The rain described


by those living here as biblical. It's just flooded from three


different directions. It was coming in under The Doors.

It is fair rather than anything else that that will get worse and come


into the house. What can you do? Contractors in Louth working


for Anglian Water rushed with They saw what was happening to us


and came to our assistance. We were within two inches of it coming into


the house. There is going to be further rainfall but we hope it will


not be on the same scale as earlier on. But we have taken the


opportunity to do further planning. Water poured through the ceiling


at this sewing shop ` and business owner Valarie rushed to


save wedding dresses. I have a dress that cost a lot of


money. It cannot be replaced. With more rain forecast `


emergency services in Louth watch closely to see if their help will be


needed once more. Mark Welsh is from


Lincolnshire County Council. I asked him what problems


the rain had caused flooding. In years gone by we would


down? not `` either councils letting as


down? Fire and Rescue have been there


through the day. This sort of rainfall, where ever it would fall


would cause a problem. One of the water companies has said this will


be the norm for the future. Have you got the resources to cope? Some


people see the likelihood of summer five times as likely. I think that


is true. In terms of resources we are prepared. There was some heavy


rain today for a short period of time and then we see those pictures.


Do you have the resources to cope? Yes we have. Had that rain fallen


somewhere else it would have caused the same problem. What advice do you


have for those affected today, and also over the weekend? I am very


sorry for anybody that has been flooded. We will be investigating


that. Over the weekend, heavy rainfall tonight, Sunday, a storm


coming through. Be prepared. Check the Environment Agency for online.

it was wrong to shut the eastbound More from our


Political Editor Tim Iredale. Throughout the day yesterday

In Edwardian times, Bridlington offered elegant


escapism, and the jewel in its entertainment crown was the Spa.


But when war broke out 100 years ago, the venue's star


faced being axed because everyone thought he was German.


Jo Makel has been looking at how even the world


of entertainment couldn't escape the realities of war.

He would perform to the Royal Family. He was eight mast for people


visiting the seaside. `` he was an essential for people visiting the


seaside. But Kandt's future at the Spa was


at risk. The outbreak of war meant


attitudes were changing. Seaside fun was


about to get serious. For one thing the Government wanted


everyone to boycott German goods. But the worry about German


influences put the spotlight He was from a Russian immigrant


family, called Kantovich and had But his adopted name ` Herr Kandt `


was a problem. It was a disaster to be branded as a


foreigner, especially if you were in military uniform. There was a


feeling in favour of him in the town because of commercial reasons.


Loyalty to King and country crashed against commercial success. Energy

You may not have heard of chips ice. We went to find out by chip spice is


such a hit. It is a phenomenon. Its appeal seems


to be spreading. I am sending it to my son who emigrated to Australia.


It is good to. This person is one of those credited with starting the


clays. We saw products of the same style in America. That puts the idea


into our heads. It has inspired a line of clothing. They sold out


straightaway. And now this entrepreneur has brought out his own


brand. Who better to explain what it is? You can put chilly or carry on


your chips. It is healthy. But in Lincolnshire at no one has heard of


it. Have you ever heard of it? No. It is not something we have been


asked for. It has not spread over the bridge


yet, but one day Lincolnshire could be as mad on chip spice.


Here is a recap of the headlines. America attacks Islamist militants


in Iraq launching an air strike. And the last to hear worthy


Lancaster bombers are brought together in Lincolnshire.


And the weather bash big easy along the coast. Top temperature 22


Celsius. We were talking about the flooding


that has happened today in Lincolnshire.


And one viewer has said he is fed up hearing how the agencies are working


hard and still the floods occur. Many of the messages seeing a


similar thing. Another message says, it is always


the same places where it flat and they want to build new homes where


it floods. Another message says, too many


houses are being built without sufficient infrastructure such as


drains. And another message says, as houses


were not squashed into small pleasers without renewing the drains


then they would not be an overflow of the drains.
