RAF Lakenheath has cancelled this year’s Independence Day celebration due to be held on July 4.

In a press release the United States Air Force said the decision was taken as a matter of fiscal responsibility.

A spokesperson said: “The 4th of July is a day we enjoy sharing with our friends in the local area; however, we had to make the tough decision to cancel this year’s event.”

The bases’ budget has been cut for the remainder of the American fiscal year, until September 30. Next year’s celebration will be re-evaluated based on the budget.
