Organisers of the Burnham Market Horse Trials have had to call off the event on its final day.

Heavy rain in Norfolk overnight means it is not safe for the competition to take place.

The three-day Easter weekend event attracts some of the top riders from around the world.

Organisers announced the decision to abandon the competition earlier today (Saturday) following inspections of the ground.

A major agricultural show has been cancelled today - after strong winds caused serious damage to its exhibits.

The Lamma show, at the East of England Arena in Peterborough, was due to stage its second day hosting thousands of visitors keen to check out the latest farming machinery and technology.

But following last night's gales, organisers woke to severe damage. The decision was taken to close the gates - but not before many visitors had already arrived in the car park.
