THE inaugural Northumberland Classic Vehicle Show has been cancelled due to the weather.

Due to take place at Tynedale Rugby Club, in Corbridge, for the first time on Sunday, organisers Mark Woodward Classic Events have been forced to cancel due to waterlogged grounds.

The organisers said the safety of exhibitors and guests would have been comprised as a result of the ground conditions, particularly as more rain was forecast up until the weekend.

A spokesman said: "We have received an excellent, large entry of pre-booked exhibits, but unfortunately the weather has beaten us this time. We will be back next year at Tynedale Park."
