A popular agricultural show due to take place this weekend has been cancelled.

Organisers announced on Facebook that Wasdale Head Show would not be going ahead on Saturday because of flooding in the valley.

The post said: "With deep regret I am heartbroken to have to announce the cancellation of our Show this Saturday the 14th October.

"It was a very difficult decision for the Chairperson and myself to make. All the hard work the committee has put in through the year has sadly come to nothing.

"I would like to personally thank all the people involved for a great effort as usual. The weather is beyond our control. The valley is flooded."
