The Sotterley Country Fair, which was scheduled to take place tomorrow (Sunday), has been cancelled due to the bad weather.

It was due to be held at Sotterley Hall, but organiser Rachel Bunn has confirmed that due to the adverse conditions, the event has 'been postponed until August.'

'The ground is badly waterlogged and it is just not worth the risk,' she added.

A post on the event Facebook page confirmed the decision, shortly after 6pm today (Saturday).

However, The Sotterley Charity Music event, which is taking place tonight, is still going ahead as planned.
