Marquees and show rings have been popping up in fields near Kendal, as Cumbria's biggest agricultural show gets underway.

Organisers are expecting around 30,000 people to turn up to this year's Westmorland County Show, at Crooklands.

They're asking people to help ease traffic by following the signs.

From the North down the M6 exit at J36, if you're coming up the M6 please exit at J35, coming from Kendal please come through past the hospital and come through Endmoor.

Coming from the Furness peninsula please come through Levens Bridge, turn right and come through Milnthorpe."
