Storms at Market Rasen have led to a delay in the commencement of racing.

Lightning and torrential rain hit the Lincolnshire track, resulting in a power cut.

Clerk of the course Jane Hedley said: "We've been the victim of a lightning strike, which has taken out some of our site plus thousands of houses in Market Rasen.

"Locally, we have a generator that is being fired up. We're going to connect the essentials to that and we will be able to continue and race.

"There's going to be a delay until that is all sorted out."
