The town's May Day celebrations today, Thursday, May 1 have been called off due to the bad weather.

The traditional event at the Bridport Arts Centre usually draws a crowd of people to watch Morris Dancers and have a go at dancing around the Maypole.

Organiser Margie Barbour said: "The Wyle Morris dancers are very hardy chaps so they may go ahead anyway but I am sad to say the event has been cancelled due to the horrible weather."
