Planes were seen rehearsing for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee flypast in the skies above Norfolk.

According to Flightradar24, several military aircraft including those from the RAF and USAF, started to circle around Fakenham, Holt, Dereham, and Swaffham at about 11:30am, with many planes currently practising just off the Norfolk coast.

The rehearsal lasted until about 1pm.

It comes ahead of the flypast itself which will take place on Thursday, June 2, and be visible over King's Lynn, Thetford, and Swaffham among other Norfolk locations.

Aircraft that could be seen practising over Norfolk included RAF planes such as the Airbus A400M, the Eurofighter Typhoon, and the Hercules.

American USAF planes could also be seen rehearsing including a Hercules from RAF Mildenhall.
