Newmarket Market will not be held tomorrow, Tuesday, July 19, due to the Red Weather Warning for extreme heat.
Newmarket is one of the areas covered by the warning, the first of its kind issued by the Met Office.
The decision to cancel the market has been made following discussions with traders, many of whom indicated they would be heeding advice about avoiding the exceptionally high temperatures.
The advice, which applies to most of England and Wales, is available from Advice – Met Office or Heatwave: how to cope in hot weather – NHS (www.nhs.uk)
The market will return as usual on Saturday, July 23, on Market Square, in Newmarket.
