Blackpool air taunts investigated

Message in the sky above Preston North End FC

Officials are investigating an aircraft that flew over Preston North End FC's ground with a banner mocking their relegation.

Two separate messages appeared in the sky above the stadium during the team's 3-1 victory over Watford on Saturday.

One read: "Poor little Preston enjoy Lge 1" while the other boasted: "We are superior love Blackpool FC."

The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) said they didn't have permission to fly the plane there.
