Thousands of people have been enjoying the Cockermouth Show in west Cumbria today.

There were all sorts of breeds of sheep, cattle and poultry competing for the rosettes - a gold, silver and bronze of their own I suppose.

The show's been running since eighteen forty nine, and also featured food stalls and a playground.

Norma Boyes, Secretary of the Cockermouth Show, said despite the odd shower the day had been a complete success.
