YOUNG farmers from across Cumbria put their skills of deception to the test at the county final of the 'call my bluff' competition.

Eight teams assembled at The George Hotel, Penrith, to trick their opponents into believing incorrect meanings for obscure words.

Amongst the words chosen were tyrotoxism (the poisoning of a person with cheese or other milk products) and stee (Cumbrian dialect for ladder).

Judges Helen Pickup and Linda Pigney congratulated the competitors on the excellence of their stories, which ensured a fun evening was had by all.

The Penrith Young Farmers Club (YFC) team of Charlotte Wilson, Rachel Lyall and Tamara Wilson were named champions, taking home the Betty Graham Call my Bluff Trophy. Skelton YFC's A-team took second and the Skelton B-team third.
