Caernarfon Show cancelled over equine flu fears

Concerns about equine flu has led organisers to cancel an annual agricultural show.
The Caernarfon Show was due to take place this weekend at Wern Ddu Fields, but a number of exhibitors pulled out due fears for horses’ health.
Earlier in the week five animals from Bwlchgwyn in Wrexham tested positive for the highly contagious disease.
Chairman of the show Peter Rutherford said it was “an incredibly difficult thing to do”.
“This show’s a very old show, we’ve been running since about 1882”.
