Organisers have cancelled this year's Banbury and District Show amid safety concerns due to the weather. 

Torrential rain and the condition of the town's Spiceball Park have forced them to cancel the annual fair which was due to take place on Sunday.

Chairman of the General Services Committee Colin Clarke said: "The welfare of show visitors and participants is paramount and underfoot conditions in the park are poor after prolonged rain earlier this week and last week.

"Unfortunately the short dry period will not be sufficient for the ground to dry out in time. We have left the decision as late as possible in case of a positive change in the weather but have to take the storm warnings and ground conditions on board."
