Conwy mussel plant closure opens row over food rules

7 March 2013 Last updated at 14:34 GMT

A row has broken out between the operator of a mussel plant who claims "over-zealous" regulation is forcing him to shut and the local authority which says he could have remained open.

Tom Jones says the hand picking of mussels in the Conwy estuary may end with the closure of his plant.

But Conwy council said it has had to make numerous visits to the plant to offer "substantial" food safety advice.

It said that despite this the plant had "made enough progress" to stay open. Roger Pinney reports.
