Events planned as part of a sporting competition between thousdands of youngsters from across Cornwall tomorrow have been cancelled.
Many of the outdoor activities involved in the annual Sainsbury's Cornwall School Games will not go ahead due to the dire weather forecast.
A spokesman for the organisers from Cornwall Sports Partnership said: "It is with great regret that we have to send out this statement but with a very wet forecast, thunderstorms due tomorrow and obvious associated risks to competitors we have had to cancel all the outdoor sports where we can’t move them to an indoor venue.
"The opening ceremony and registration will still go ahead at Richard Lander School with the same transport arrangements to other venues in and around Truro for all the other sports. We have managed to get hold of as many local indoor facilities as possible.
"We will try and reschedule the events and further information to follow next week."
Events now not taking place are: all beach sports, at Perranporth, including surfing, bodyboarding and beach volleyball; primary and secondary athletics; rugby and tag rugby; grass track cycling; disability football; golf; and hockey.
