Hundreds cheered off the traditional Boxing Day hunt from Welshpool.

Among those cheering on the Tanatside meet was former Montgomeryshire MP Glyn Davies.

He later said: "Lots of horses today (surely 60). And no demonstration from objectors this year."

"Always enjoy the Tanatside Boxing Day Meet in Welshpool. Been part of the local Christmas ritual throughout my lifetime.

"Caught the Master, John Tirnewydd, doffing his hat to supporters as he led around 10 couples of hounds up Broad Street and High Street."
