Thousands of people have been soaking up the sunshine at the annual Boconnoc Steam Fair this weekend.

Organisers said the show, held near Lostwithiel, has been a huge success so far with the warm weather drawing in the crowds.

“It’s all gone very well so far,” said show secretary Janet Cooper.

“We’re not sure of exact numbers just yet but we’ve had thousands of people come down.

“And the weather has been beautiful.”

The fair continues today with a range of displays including tractor pulling and mower racing.

This year's show features 48 steam engines, as wells as classic cars, vintage tractors and trade stalls.
