A morning at Melton Market...

If you wanted to sum up all that is great about the countryside in Leicestershire and Rutland you could do worse than go down to Melton Market on a Tuesday.

It sells everything from a sheep to a wind-up record player via ducks, chickens, piccalilli, cows, bacon sarnies, logs, knives and forks and game, which is what BBC Radio Leicester's Ben Jackson went along to have a look at with one of our Food Friday cooks and market regular, Hazel Paterson.
