Milk price row: Farmers and processors agree draft deal

Dairy farmers and the processing firms they supply have agreed on the broad principles of a deal in their dispute over milk prices, the government says.

The draft agreement relates to a voluntary code of practice designed to give farmers more bargaining power.

But the National Farmers Union said it would not solve the current "crisis".

Farming Minister Jim Paice has chaired a meeting between the NFU and Dairy UK following a series of farmers' protests over the prices they are paid.

Hywel Griffith reports.
