New badger cull licenses issued, on-farm slaughter

Anna Hill with the latest news about food, farming and the countryside, as Defra extends the badger cull and grants 11 new licenses.

DEFRA extends the badger cull and grants 11 new licenses for four years. We ask why that's happening when scientists say it isn't clear whether the cull has caused bovine TB cases to fall.
And as part of our week looking at the slaughter industry, we visit a small on-farm abattoir.

Presented by Anna Hill and produced by Beatrice Fenton.
