An RAF base is warning of a potential increase in noise levels across the region while personnel take part in flight training. 

Members of the 48th Fighter Wing, from RAF Lakenheath, will be flying on a more frequent basis until Thursday (May 13).

The operation, which will see F-15 fighter jets take to the skies, is designed to demonstrate the wing's ability to rapidly generate an airborne response. 

Night flying is expected as F-15 fighter jets from RAF Lakenheath take part in a training exercise.

The exercise does not include plans for low-altitude flying in the area and all training is being conducted in accordance with Ministry of Defence and UK airspace regulations.
