Watch moment Lancaster Bomber flew over Yorkshire skies this weekend

This is the moment the iconic Lancaster bomber flew low over houses in Yorkshire this weekend.

The video, shot by reader Andrew Radford, shows the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight’s Avro Lancaster just over the tops of the houses in Stocksbridge, South Yorkshire.

He said: “I was in the garden around 2pm on Saturday and heard a plane. Recognising the noise I thought that's the Lancaster.

"And sure enough there it was approaching. A quick dash in to the house for my phone and caught this picture and short video.

Among the various stalls was one which sought to educate and inform about some of the lesser-known conflicts that have taken place throughout history.

Clive Howells, a veteran who experienced the Brunei Rebellion of December 1962 during his career, said: “Some years ago, we had an idea to try show the public forgotten conflicts, ones that occurred years ago and have now been forgotten about.

"We have photographs and stories that tell people about these conflicts that happened so long ago that they’ve almost been forgotten.

"We thank the serving soldiers and veterans for what they’ve done for the country.”
