The UK Prime Minister David Cameron visited Wetherby today ahead of the Tour de France.
Mr Cameron spent time with school children in the town, walked through the streets, and met some of the ladies responsible for the knitted bunting around Wetherby.
He said: “There is definitely Tour fever in Wetherby. I love all the bunting and the fact that all the schools have got involved.
“As you would expect from Yorkshire men and women they are making the most of it, and what is good about the route is that it is going to take in some really beautiful countryside.
“This is a fantastic spotlight on Yorkshire and I can’t think of a better way to promote the county.”
