Thousands of people are due to attend the first day of the Royal Norfolk Show when it opens this morning. It's one of the largest agricultural shows in the country and lasts for two days.

The event is held at the Norfolk Showground in Norwich, with livestock and equine competitions and displays on both days. More than fifteen hundred horses are entered into equestrian events, including show jumping.
