PEOPLE have flocked to Malton for the annual Christmas Fatstock Show last Tuesday.

Farmers had their stock appraised by expert judges, the Swales family, Steve, Anthony and Luke, who judged the cattle and Anthony Glaves, who judged the sheep. The event also raised £650 towards the Teenage Cancer Trust.
