Angus Show went ahead despite the competitions for cattle, sheep and horses being cancelled.

Show organisers cancelled these classes due to “extreme unexpected weather conditions”.

However, visitors flocked to the event to enjoy other attractions including trade stands, goat classes and vintage tractor football.
