An agricultural show in Worcestershire has attracted a record number of competition entries and exhibitors.

More than 900 cattle have been entered in competition at the Three Counties Show, held in Malvern, Worcestershire.

Sharon Gilbert, from the Three Counties Agricultural Society, said: "There is no doubt that the disappearance of the Royal Show [at Stoneleigh] has brought benefits for this event."

The show will take place at the Three Counties Showground on 17-19 June.

The last Royal Show, which was held annually in Warwickshire, was held in 2009.

The number of people visiting the Three Counties Show in 2010 was up by 6,000 on the previous year, according to the organisers.

Agricultural trade stand space for the 2011 show was sold out by March.
