New Zealand shearer David Fagan and his son Jack both won their events at the Lakeland Shears in England at the weekend.

David Fagan, 50, retained the Open title in a 20-sheep final at Cockermouth in Cumbria, and Jack, 20, won the senior final.

The Fagans are among a number of New Zealand shearers competing in Britain, including the official New Zealand team representatives, John Kirkpatrick of Napier, and Nathan Stratford, of Invercargill.

They will compete next at the Great Yorkshire Show on Wednesday.
