Newquay's gig rowing championships postponed

The County Gig Championships which were to take place over the weekend in Newquay have been postponed.

Organisers said they were concerned about strong winds and high swell that have been predicted for the area.

Hundreds of rowers had been expected to take part in the annual event which signals the end of the rowing season.

The women's championships were disrupted two weeks ago when bad weather forced racing to be abandoned on the Saturday.
