The organisers of the Great Yorkshire Show have taken the decision to cancel all the pig classes at the event.
In a statement issued this weekend the organisers said: "We have taken the decision to cancel all pig classes at this year’s Great Yorkshire Show.
"This is not a decision taken lightly and has been taken as a matter of precaution due to one unconfirmed report of a pig showing signs of illness at a recent show.
"The pig was examined by a vet at the show and a sample has been sent off for laboratory analysis. The results of the test will not be known until Tuesday this week, at the earliest.
"Animal welfare is of paramount importance to us and Great Yorkshire Show organisers have taken this step as a precautionary measure to eliminate any potential risk."
