Cheese sales see Christmas rise

Cheese sales reach their peak at this time of year, with varities such as blue Stilton remaining very popular for the Christmas dinner table.

Sales of cheese in the UK are higher over the Christmas period than at any other time over the year.

Varieties such as blue Stilton, which is made in only a few dairies in Britain, remain particularly popular.

Jenny Hill visited a dairy in Melton Mowbray to investigate how cheese makes it to the Christmas dinner table.
