Great Dorset Steam Fair has a muddy start

The Great Dorset Steam Fair opened to the public as heavy rain turned much of the site to mud.

Members of the public started to arrive at the site in Tarrant Hinton on Wednesday.

Exhibitors experienced problems accessing the 600-acre site in the last few days, but many of the public car parks were unaffected.

Martin Oliver, managing director of the show, said everything was up and running.
