Hoppings opening 'dependent on the weather'

The organisers of the annual Hoppings fair in Newcastle have confirmed that the event could be postponed until Monday - but even that is weather dependent.

It is only the second time in the 130 year history of event that it has been postponed. A meeting with the showmen is set to take place at 4.30pm.
