The Adnams Food and Drink Experience was one of the busiest attractions on day one of the Royal Norfolk Show as a soaking rain fell over the showground.

Visitors crammed into the undercover area from early on as they sought refuge from the wet weather.

One of the busiest stands was Express Coffee where a long line of people had formed waiting for a hot drink.

Kate Lyons of pudd'Eng said it was their first time at the show and early indications were good.

'We've been busy and a lot of people have been tasting our puddings so far. This is our first time and we're really enjoying being here.'
