The Kent County Show is in full swing at Detling

Thousands of people are at the Kent County Showground at Detling as the show moves into its second day.

Visitors can enjoy an enormous range of activities from watching dancing sheep, to Punch and Judy, to live music, a re-creation of an Anglo-Saxon battle and a thrilling Cossack horseback dancing display.

But the traditional livestock classes remain a huge draw as farmers compete for the coveted trophies.
