Lunchtime pollen count with Jon Mitchell
Yorkshire Day has been celebrated throughout the county, with the local people, cuisine and language being brought to the fore.

The unnamed 85-year-old was spotted edging down the motorway between junctions near Sheffield. Traffic slowed down as motorists came across scene.
Police think he joined the M1 at junction 31 but was turned around by an officer.
South Yorkshire Police said the force received a number of calls about the pensioner's trip down the hard shoulder, adding his family had since been contacted:
To mark Yorkshire Day, residents upheld the tradition of reading the Declaration of Integrity - four times.
Judith Anderson Preston, President of the Yorkshire Riding Society, read it out in Latin at one of the gates of York's walls.
Listen to it here in full:
The Yorkshire Ridings Society led their annual walk around York's walls with the county's flag today.
The Yorkshire Declaration of Integrity was read out at the four gates.

The ceremonial party has now moved to St Helen’s Square for an afternoon of entertainment.
