Organisers of the Royal Cornwall Show say forecasts of bad weather could have kept people away.

A hundred and seventeen thousand visitors flooded into the Wadebridge site.

But that is slightly down on normal.

Secretary Chris Riddle told Pirate FM they were close to record livestock entries: "Lots and lots of people come. It gives farmers locally a great opportunity to meet with these people, chat through their issues and swap ideas.

"I think it's a huge meeting place, not only for Cornwall but for the south west and from further afield. We see farmers coming great distances. We have cattle from Yorkshire for instance."
