Fisheries Minister George Eustice explains to a Parliamentary Select Committee that drones could be used to help police British waters and ensure fishermen are obeying the rules after Brexit, and as Heather Simons reports there are also discussions underway about bringing the dispute between UK and French scallop fishermen to a close.

In other Brexit news the British Poultry Council has issued a stark warning about what "no-deal" would mean for producers and consumers of chicken meat. Charlotte Smith just asks him why, and whether the BPC are guilty of scaremongering.

It's beer week on Farming Today and there's a report from Leicestershire about a micro-pub which is bucking the trend in pub closures, and an interview with Dr Julian South from the Malsters' Association of Great Britain about the importance of Malt to UK and indeed global brewing.

Producer: Toby Field.
