The third day of racing at the Cheltenham festival gets underway later.

Today is named St Patrick's Thursday, so spectators heading to the course can expect to see not just the horses but some Irish themed celebrations too.

Gloucestershire Police say the Cheltenham Festival got off to a "peaceful start" with only a few crimes reported.

Just one man was arrested - in connection to handling of counterfeit money. Police say they'd like the good start to the festivities "to continue into the evening."
