    Earlier this week, Prime Minister Boris Johnson said restrictions would stay for four more weeks until 19 July.

    A spokesperson for the famous show, which will take place in Harrogate on 13-16 July, said some additional restrictions might be put in place.

    In March, show organisers the Yorkshire Agricultural Society (YAS) said the 2021 event, the 162nd in its history, would go ahead "subject to restrictions being lifted as set out by the government".

    On Monday, Boris Johnson said rules around social distancing and face coverings, along with limits on the number of people who can meet indoors,would remain in place until 19 July.

    Following that announcement, YAS has said it was working alongside North Yorkshire's public health team to "deliver a Covid-safe show".

    Richard Webb, corporate director for health and adult services at North Yorkshire County Council, said the authority and Harrogate Borough Council continued to "actively engage with the show organisers".

    "We are still seeking assurances around steps they need to take to ensure the event runs safely against the backdrop of increasing Covid-19 transmission rates and the Prime Minister's recent announcement of the delay in the lifting of the road map," he added.
