UK pork market, Poppers, Scrap metal
A look at why British pig farmers are struggling to compete with EU producers, plus the UK's leading manufacturer of poppers, the recreational drug defended by Crispin Blunt MP.
British pig farmers are struggling to compete with EU producers, because of a ban on imports of European food by Russia. Prices have been plummeting since one of the largest pork markets disappeared, and there's a glut of cheap pork. You & Yours hears from pig farmers who explain why UK welfare standards make competing on price tough.
You & Yours also has an exclusive interview with the UK's leading manufacturer of Poppers, the recreational drug defended by Conservative MP, Crispin Blunt. John Addy from Liquid Gold explains why he is going to fight Government plans to ban them under the Psychoactive Substances Bill.
Plus how falling metal prices could make it harder for you to get rid of your old stuff.

** Update: During the discussion about British Pork, we incorrectly said Waitrose sells Danish pork alongside British produce. We would like to clarify that all Waitrose bacon, sausages and ham are British, the only exception being authentic continental meats such as Parma ham.
