UK pork farmers will face pressure to lower prices because of Russia's ban on food imports from a number of Western countries, say experts.

The ban is expected to increase the supply of pork on world markets.

"This will increase competition on global markets," said Mick Sloyan, director of BPEX, the UK trade body for pork producers.

Jeremy Howell reports.
