Over a thousand dairy farmers wont be paid for their milk because of a financial crisis at the co-operative First Milk.

David Handley, a dairy farmer and chairman of Farmers for Action, told Today: "dairy farming families are in a state of limbo".

President of the NFU, Meurig Raymond, said it was "a symptom of the dairy industry...we've lost sixty dairy farmers in December alone".
