This year's Royal Highland Show has been cancelled because of FMD. The Royal Highland and Agricultural Society of Scotland's decision follows the cancellation of the Royal Show at Stoneleigh. RHASS chairman Sandy Brown said: "We had a number of options including staging a show without cattle or sheep. However with no real sign in a let up in the situation, it would have been inappropriate and insensitive to continue with plans." The RHASS will still be holding the annual Food From Scotland Excellence Awards which run in conjunction with the show and are sponsored by The Grocer. {{NEWS }}
