A spokesman said: "As responsible event organisers, the protection and wellbeing of everyone who attends our events is always of paramount importance to us here at BEDE, so rest assured that we have taken steps to ensure the safety of everyone

"With that in mind, we have acted to minimise any potential risks by scaling back the family zone and the hospitality areas.

"This will limit contact in confined spaces, while still enabling visitors to safely enjoy this premier event with its countless attractions."
