Despite blistering conditions, thousands braved Storm Gareth to attend this year's Ladies Day at Cheltenham Festival.

Now into day two at the racecourse, festival goers including the likes of Andy Murray, the Princess Royal, the Duchess of Cornwall and Zara Tindall showed off their stylish side.

Other celebrities at the event included Eamonn Holmes, former professional footballer Martin Keown, model Vogue Williams and actor Nigel Havers.

Earlier today, organisers confirmed that racing would go ahead following concerns about weather conditions from Storm Gareth.

Simon Claisse, clerk of the course, gave the green light after after the strength of winds 'moderated on the forecast'.
