This year's challenging harvest caused by wet July has been featured on ITV News

Local farmer, Jonny Rutherford, has told ITV Tyne Tees he is "extremely concerned" about this year's harvest following one of the wettest Julys on record.

Jonny, from Longhorsley, said his team are working around the clock while the rain holds off in order to complete the harvest.

He said: "It's put a lot of crops flat which damages grain quality, makes the moisture a lot higher, when you try and combine it. It makes operations a lot slower.

The report into the challenging grain harvest includes comment from North East Grains Managing Director Matthew Curry, who discusses the impact on farmers and business operations. Watch the full report below.
