The Great Yorkshire Show has been hailed a great success after coming to a close yesterday.

Organisers say the show attracted 133,542 visitors over the three days including a record second day which saw over 20,000 cars fill the car parks.

Yesterday's final day was topped with a successful marriage proposal flown high above the showground.

As the 2017 event drew to a close Lord Middleton handed over the traditional Shepherd’s Crook held by the Show President to incoming President Bill Cowling.

The most prestigious show jumping class in the north, the Ripon Select Foods Cock O’The North was won by Lancashire’s Nigel Coupe on Golvers Hill, the horse on which he took the Hickstead Derby just three weeks ago.

Yorkshire’s Robert Smith took second on his own Ilton.

Stray FM's Will Smith speaks to Show Director Charles Mills:

Show Director Charles Mills said the three day show had exceeded all expectations with record entries in a number of classes and some fantastic competition.

“Every year we think it can’t get any better, but every year it does. New attractions and investment in the show site means it evolves every year.

“We will all be looking forward to next year’s event and we would like to congratulate all our winners and thank all our visitors for a wonderful show.”
