Preparations underway for Wickham Horse Fair

Preparations are underway for one of Hampshire's oldest rural events - The Wickham Horse Fair.

It takes place tomorrow and attracts travellers from all over the country.

It dates back to the 13th Century and provides an opportunity for fair-goers to parade their stock and meet up with friends and family.

But most businesses in the village will be losing money as they'll be closed for the duration of the fair.

As Richard Jones reports.

Richard spoke to Optometrist Linda Bone, Supt Alison Heydari from Hampshire Police and Funfair Operator John Searle.
