Floods force first ploughing match cancellation in 114-year history

Continuous rain and unsuitable ground conditions forced the cancellation of Brailsford Ploughing Match for the first time in its more than 100-year history.

 

The waterlogged site, at Sapperton Manor in Church Broughton, Derbyshire, was expected to be home to the 114th annual match on Wednesday (October 2) but organisers called it off the day before following excessive downpours.

 

Elsewhere the River Ribble burst its banks in Sawley, Lancashire, and the Met Office has said to prepare for more heavy rain and coastal gales amid the leftovers of Hurricane Lorenzo.

 

The ‘ex-hurricane’ is expected to bring a swathe of strong winds to Northern Ireland, while gusts of 50-55mph are expected inland in south west England and Wales.

 

Those in coastal areas could see winds of up to 65mph and north-western parts of the UK will be hit by spells of heavy rain.

 

Chief meteorologist Dan Suri said: “We are now increasingly confident the remnants of Lorenzo will move towards the UK, bringing a spell of wet and very windy weather to western parts [of the UK] on Friday.”
