GDP: View from Cheddar cheesemaker

As the latest GDP figures are announced, BBC West of England business correspondent Dave Harvey has visited a Cheddar cheese-maker to see the impact of exports on UK growth.

Tim Harrap from Lye Cross Farm told him they export to more than 30 countries, including new markets like Korea and Japan.

However, Clive Wray from Business West, which tries to increase exports, said "We're still too reliant on our traditional markets... We're not taking advantage of places like Korea, Mexico, Russia, Brazil, in the same way as Europe and the rest of the world are doing."
