The Thriplow Daffodil Festival will go ahead, despite recent weather causing a shortage of daffodils. Up to 10,000 people are expected to visit the Cambridgeshire village on the weekend of March 17th.

Vast numbers of daffodils have been killed off by February's freezing temperatures, after blooming too early during a mild January. But organisers say they're confident there'll be plenty of flowers on display.
