Northamptonshire gears up for World Conker Championships

Weather looks like it could play a part in a world championship, taking place in Northamptonshire over the weekend.

The strong winds might be handy at getting some cracking conkers out of the trees but its not so clever when you are trying to either whack your opponents or hold yours still.

And it's not good news for the thousands expected to turn out, either to watch the World Conker Championships, which traditionally takes place near Oundle on the second Sunday of October every year.
