    Horses

    Horses and ponies are being exported across Europe as unscrupulous dealers exploit a lack of enforcement, the World Horse Welfare charity has said.

     

    The charity said a "murky trade" had developed in the export of "low-value" animals which could end up in the human food chain. The BBC found a lack of checks at ports was contributing to the problem.

     

    Defra said export guidelines would be tightened from May.
