Grape growers in Leeds are celebrating after harvesting a bumper crop despite the wet weather this summer.

Harvesters at Leventhorpe Vineyard in Woodlesford, had predicted a disappointing yield this year but against the odds, they have produced a successful crop.

They managed to collect three tonnes of grapes per acre at the south-facing vineyard.
