MPs Discuss Airbase's Future

Norfolk MPs have been making the case to save RAF Marham, which could be closed as part of government cuts.

Today they spoke to the Armed Forces minister about the future of the base, whilst planes from the base have been continuing to help enforce a no fly zone in Libya.
