Burghley Horse Trials cancelled

The event won't take place due to coronavirus

The Burghley horse trials won't be going ahead this year.

The event was due to take place in early September but organisers say it's being cancelled for the first time in its history due to the coronavirus pandemic.

They say had to act responsibly and put everyone's safety first and therefore felt it couldn't take place.

The horse trials attract huge crowds to Burghley House and the decision is a major blow to not only competitors and spectators but also the tourism industry in the area.
