Labour's Mary Creagh angry over horsemeat crisis

Labour has accused the government of mishandling the horsemeat crisis.

Environment Secretary Owen Paterson told MPs there would be further testing on UK beef products to establish the extent to which they have been contaminated.

Results are due at the end of this week.

Speaking in the Commons, Shadow Environment Secretary Mary Creagh said Mr Paterson had been too slow to respond.

''The Secretary of State had to be called back to London from his long weekend to deal with the crisis. Crisis? What crisis?'' she said.
