Seaside towns are being warned to expect excessive noise as the RAF performs an air exercise in the area. 

The exercise, called Galea Lightning, will take place within a five-mile stretch over north Norfolk on Tuesday. 

It will extend from Weybourne to Sheringham in the east, Holt in the south and Blakeney marshes in the west, as well as out to sea.

Some noise pollution throughout the day can be expected and locals are being warned to keep their windows and doors shut. 

Despite being an RAF station, Lakenheath currently only hosts United States Air Force aircraft which includes the F-15E "Strike Eagle" and the F-35A Lightning.

It lies close to Thetford and Brandon, within close distance to RAF Mildenhall which also hosts the United States Air Force.
