Day two of the Royal Cornwall Show is underway despite strong winds and heavy showers. Organisers say a virtually full programme of entertainment will take place in the main ring and all main sections will be up and running.

Yesterday, sheep had to be evacuated from their marquee which was closed yesterday because of waterlogged ground and high winds.

The Royal Bath and West show opens in Shepton Mallet today with visitors and contributors from all over the west country. It's the largest agricultural show in the country. Tens of thousands of people are expected even though the four day event is not taking place in half term this year.
