Horsemeat scandal: Romania denies it is source of error

Romania has denied it was the source of the mislabelling of horsemeat which has turned up in processed meat products in Britain and elsewhere in Europe.

The Romanians say horsemeat that leaves their country has not been minced, and is labelled as horse.

Tesco has now revealed that some portions of spaghetti bolognese, removed from sale as a precautionary measure, have been found to contain significant levels of horsemeat.

Christian Fraser reports from Romania.
