ABOUT 10,000 people turned out for the Cambrigeshire County Show on Sunday causing traffic delays in the area.

The show - organised by the Cambridgeshire Young Farmers - had activities from a Panto Donkey Steeplechase to traditional country skills such as sheep-shearing.

Organiser Kim Bullen said: "We are absolutely delighted with the attendance figures."

Crowds basked in the sun enjoying a programme of main ring events or visited the trade stands which reported good sales.

It was heartening to see the high standard of competitive exhibits, too.

The careful placing of almonds on the Dundee cakes was as important as the construction of superb model dinosaurs made from scrap metal.
