THOUSANDS of people lined the seafront at Lee-on-the-Solent for a flypast of vintage Second World War fighter planes.

The roar of flight engines and the planes swooping down low delighted the crowds.

It came after a poignant remembrance service to mark the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings.

Debbie Watts, 53, of Edgecombe Crescent, Gosport, dressed up as an army sergeant and cheered and clapped as the planes soared past the beach.

‘It’s been fabulous,’ she said.

‘You are never going to get this again at Lee-on-the-Solent. It makes me feel so proud to be British.’
