Brexit: Lesley Griffiths says UK 'must fight' in farm trade talks

The Welsh farming and food sector needs assurances from UK Government that it is listening to trade worries post-Brexit, the rural affairs secretary has said.

Lesley Griffiths met meat processors at a plant in Merthyr Tydfil.

She said negotiations take time but she needed to know the UK Government would "fight" for Wales in trade deals.

The UK Government has argued it will get the best deal for Britain in all sectors.

Ms Griffiths told BBC Wales economics correspondent Sarah Dickins it was up to her to make sure the UK negotiators fought for Welsh farmers.
