With Brexit ahead, many people in the agricultural industry are worried for their futures.

Despite only being in the role for less than a month, Mr Gove says he will do everything he can to make sure the environment is "at the heart of policy making".

He promised to protect and support the industry until 2022.

The show is expected to attract more than 80,000 people over the next few days.

It's the largest two day agricultural show in the country and attracts visitors and exhibitors from across the UK.

But in typical British fashion, the weather hasn't turned out as hoped.

The RAF Falcons parachute team had to cancel their morning show, but will be hoping to put on an exciting display this evening.
