Hundreds braved the rain this weekend as they attended the annual Gorefield Show at the Fenland village playing field.

The bad weather didn't seem to dampen the atmosphere as everything continued as planned - with dozens taking part in this year's heavy and light horse events.

A spokesman said: "Thank you to everyone that braved the cold wet windy day and came to Gorefield Show. We are very grateful for all the support shown.

"A great deal of work goes into planning and putting on such a marvellous day and it wouldn't be possible without all the committee, helpers and local community support."

The annual celebration was, again, attended by North East Cambridgeshire MP and Brexit Secretary, Steve Barclay.

He said: "It may have been wet and windy but lots of fun at the Gorefield Show today.

"A favourite was the musical chairs with the winner being the quickest dog to sit when the music stopped!
