The Great Dorset Steam Fair has had to change its dates for 2016 to stop it clashing with the new school year. It will now take place at the showground at Tarrant Hinton over the August Bank Holiday weekend.

The Great Dorset Steam Fair gets underway this morning. Last year's event was disrupted by heavy rain with some displays cancelled but the forecast is good for today.
Up to 200,000 people are expected over the next five days at the event at Tarrant Hinton near Blandford Forum.
It's one of the largest steam fairs in Europe with hundreds of vintage vehicles, including more than 250 tractors.
