Bovine TB: Narberth farmer says 'targeted' approach needed

Farms in parts of Wales where bovine TB is rife could face tougher restrictions under plans set to be outlined on Tuesday.

The Welsh Government will announce a fresh approach to combat the disease in cattle after a public consultation.

Farmers had been asked to give their views on the idea of splitting the country into areas of low, intermediate and high risk, based on levels of TB.

Farming unions said Wales' TB restrictions were already among the strictest in the world.

John Phillips, a Pembrokeshire farmer, whose cattle have been free of TB for 18 months, shows how the testing regime currently works and said the new approach needs to be targeted.
