Video: Highlights from day two at sun-drenched Balmoral

Waiting for Video...

Showgoers were bathed in warm sunshine on Thursday as thousands flocked to day two of the Balmoral event.

Queues for the second last day of the show grew around late morning, as couples, friends, families, farmers and those just after a day out gathered at the Maze Long Kesh complex.

Inside events as wide-ranging as woolhandling and goat-judging to a daredevil motorbike display entertained the crowds wandering around the arena.

Among those at the show yesterday were deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness, Agriculture Minister Michelle O’Neill and Justice minister David Ford.

The main arena was transformed, in just a matter of hours, from a place of tranquil, elegant horse-driving to the scene of death-defying stunts as motorcyclists rode through the air, leaping off a lorry platform as crowds looked on.
