UPDATE 11:40 Bolesworth have announced that the show is closed to the public both WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY.

Yesterday was the wettest day in South West Cheshire for years and it is therefore no wonder that there are problems. In places the A41 is very difficult; trains between Chester and Crewe are cancelled, there is flooding in the village and the first day of the Bolesworth International has been disrupted.

Bolesworth issued the following statement an hour or so ago.

'Unfortunately, despite taking proactive measures throughout the build up and overnight we are not able to open the show to the Public today. We have significant water standing on site and also on the roads surrounding, and so have taken the decision that movement on site is not possible for safety purposes. Full refunds will be provided via the ticket agent you purchased from within 10 working days.

The sport schedule for the day remains unchanged. We will update all competitors later today on any further changes to the schedule ahead of tomorrow.

Those who have booked camping for today will be refunded and we will update you on access later today for the following days.

Thank you for all your support to date.
We will endeavour to update you as soon as we can.'
