A youth festival due to take place in Harrogate this weekend has been cancelled because of the rain.

Culture Shock, organised by North Yorkshire County Council, was scheduled to be held at the Great Yorkshire Showground for four days, concluding on Saturday.

But persistent, heavy rain has left the site waterlogged and the whole event has had to be cancelled.

In recent years, Culture Shock has become a popular summer event, offering workshops and activities as well as dance and music performances.
