DESPITE the downpours, visitors are flocking to North Yorkshire for the start of the region's most iconic agricultural show.

Today (Tuesday, July 9) is the first day of the 165th Great Yorkshire Show, an annual agricultural event which is set to welcome 140,000 visitors over the course of its four days.

The celebration of all things farming has seen tickets completely sell out with visitors set to enjoy the best of all things countryside from show jumping to sheep shearing to the 'Battle of the Butchers'.

In total, there are more than 12,000 entries across 21 different sections of the show - giving revellers plenty to enjoy.
