A classic car show which was cancelled due to the floods is back on.

The Fleur-De-Lys Classic show takes place from 4pm today at Thornes Park.

The event will show off 800 cars and will showcase a special Olympics tribute when vehicles toot their horns at 20:12 to mark of the official opening of the games.

The Fleur-De-Lys Classic Vehicle Society was originally set to host its annual rally on July 6, but the event was rained off.

People can expect to see classics ranging from commercials and motorbikes, to military and public service vehicles.

The rally - which raises money for local charities including Wakefield Hospice and the Yorkshire Air Ambulance - is free for anyone to attend.
