More than seven thousand people are expected to attend today's National Sheep Association North Sheep show in Cockermouth.

Over two hundred trade stands and all of the UK's major sheep breed societies are planned to be present for the event at Millston Moor Farm.

It's the first time it has been staged in Cumbria for five years.

Bringing NSA North Sheep back to Cumbria is a great choice for us, as it's one of the country's most renowned sheep producing areas.

"NSA North Sheep will be focusing on the current challenges and opportunities in the industry, and we are expecting visitors from all over the UK to make the trip to the Marston's fantastic livestock farm for this important industry event."

– Julie Sedgewick, event organiser
