After a stormy start to the 30th Sunderland International Airshow, organisers are hoping it will be business as usual on day two.

Yesterday's thunderstorms affected some of the flying and entertainment on the ground, but it didn't stop the show's star attraction, the Red Arrows, from strutting their stuff.

Today the Met Office forecast is for unsettled weather, with scattered showers and fresh gusty winds, so if you're off to the airshow it might be wise to take your waterproof.

This morning is expected to be cloudy and breezy in the morning, with frequent heavy - possibly thundery - showers, or longer spells of rain.
