Charlotte Smith hears that Cheshire West is selling its council farms but across the border Cheshire East is keeping them. Councillor Eveleigh Moore Dutton justifies why Cheshire West and Chester are selling their farms. George Dunn from the Tenant Farmers Association explains what the situation is across the UK.

By the end of 2012 the British Retail Consortium has a target to reduce supermarket food waste by 5%. At the end of 2010 they had only reached 0.4%. Bob Gordon from the BRC tells Charlotte what supermarkets are doing to try and reach the target in time.

Presented by Charlotte Smith. Produced by Emma Weatherill.
