Youngsters from a Harrogate school helped get celebrations for the 150th Great Yorkshire Show off to a flying start by releasing 150 balloons.

The Hookston Chase Primary School pupils released 150 helium-filled balloons to mark the opening of the ticket hotline for the Yorkshire Agricultural Society’s showpiece.

Attached to each balloon was a cow-shaped voucher offering the finder two adult tickets to the anniversary show.
