Bad weather has forced the organisers of a popular model aircraft show to cancel the event.

The 20th anniversary Woodspring Wings Show was due to take place at its airfield in Yatton next weekend.

But heavy rain during the past month has caused the airfield to become waterlogged and after an inspection, organisers took the decision to cancel.
