Crowds travelling to IWM Duxford's Battle of Britain Airshow this weekend could be impacted by railway engineering works.

Taking place on Saturday, September 16, and Sunday, September 17, the airshow is a popular event on the museum's calendar, but those travelling by train will need to plan ahead.

Engineering work is taking place between Royston and Cambridge on both days, forcing the closure some lines, with replacement bus services being provided.

​​Work is also taking place between Cambridge and Stansted Airport, closing all lines for CrossCountry and Greater Anglia services.

This means there will be no trains stopping at Whittlesford Parkway, the closest station to IWM Duxford, but replacement bus services will be provided.

The Battle of Britain Airshow will feature more than 60 vintage and contemporary aircraft, including a flypast of 12 Spitfires and four Hurricanes to commemorate the brave servicemen and women who risked their lives to defend Britain in the summer of 1940.

The Red Arrows will be flying on both days, and there will be an historic moment, when the last airworthy B-17 Flying Fortress in Europe - known as 'Sally B' - will fly alongside the RAF's Avro Lancaster, the first time the two iconic Second World War bombers have done so in more than 20 years, and the first time ever at Duxford.

Meanwhile on the ground, crowds will be transported to the sights and sounds of the summer of 1940, with a cast of wartime characters recreating the daily life of RAF Duxford as a Battle of Britain Fighter Station.
