TEN RAF Tornados tore through Oxfordshire’s skies as they left Brize Norton yesterday.

The aircraft, which had travelled from RAF Lossiemouth in Scotland, had been grounded in the county for several days because of bad weather here and across the Atlantic. They were on their way to Nevada, to take part in Exercise Red Flag, a tactical training exercise.

No one from the RAF would comment further.
