Illegal sheepmeat from the UK has been found on the premises of the meat processor Spanghero - a company at the centre of the horsemeat scandal. French authorities have found 57 tonnes of minced lamb which had been mechanically separated from the bone - a practice that has been illegal in Europe since the BSE crisis. Also on Farming Today, The Government says it will support a ban on neonicotinoids if field trials taking place in Britain prove the pesticide is damaging to bees. The European Commission announced yesterday that it plans to take the issue to an appeals committee later this spring, after experts meeting last week failed to reach agreement over a possible ban.
