The Royal Cornwall Show is currently in its second day and those attending have had a surprise visit from someone, and it's not members of the Royal family.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has made a surprise appearance at the Royal Cornwall Show this morning on what appears to be a spur-of-the-moment decision to visit the much anticipated event.

According to some reports, the Prime Minister was seen travelling through Devon and will be joining three of Cornwall's conservative MPs - Scott Mann, Cherilyn Mackrory, and Derek Thomas - during his time at the event.

He is expected to be rallying support in Devon for the upcoming by-election in Tiverton and Honiton.
