This year's Royal County of Berkshire Show is drawing to an end and there has been a wealth of pigs, cows, tractors, foodstuffs and flowers ... and good weather!

Around 60,000 people were expected for the two-day long annual event and the crowds certainly flocked to the Newbury Showground throughout the day today (Saturday) to see highlights like the Shetland pony grand national and a parade of 2,000 livestock.

Newbury Weekly News reporters were out and about all day bringing you stories, reports and taking pictures, and we will be back tomorrow morning for day two of the seminal event in Newbury's calendar.

The weather is looking dry and mild ahead of Sunday's events, and keep and eye on our coverage tomorrow and check out next week's newspaper for a full round up of what went on.
