Captain Ian Farquhar has officially announced his retirement from the mastership of the Beaufort Hunt.

He made the decision after 34 years in the role and was rewarded with a specially made beer called The Old Captain.

The brew was created by The Flying Monk Brewery in Malmesbury - they wanted to do something to mark Mr Farquhar's retirement.
