The Prince of Wales is visiting the region today. His Royal Highness joined an estimated 40,000 people attending the Westmorland County Show, near Kendal.

The Prince spent time talking to farmers and met stall holders who specialise in local produce, and as he toured the show ground, large crowds tried to catch a glimpse of the royal visitor.
