Final preparations for Royal Welsh Show

Final preparations are being made before the 2014 Royal Welsh Show gets underway at Llanelwedd, in Powys, tomorrow.

Organisers hope close to quarter of a million visitors are going to descend on the showground between Monday and Thursday.

Last year saw a new record attendance of 241,781. Visitors came from 40 different countries, and included new grandfather Prince Charles, and the Duchess of Cornwall.

Organisers the Royal Welsh Agricultural Society say this year's show is going to be just as impressive.

The livestock classes and special awards have attracted an unprecedented 8,000 entries, and there will be more than 1,000 trade stands.

Displays will include the King's Troop of the Royal Horse Artillery, with six horses pulling First World War saluting guns, to commemorate the centenary of the conflict.
