Farmers protest Welsh government in their thousands

Home Affairs Correspondent

Many farmers in the UK and in other parts of Europe are angry and are not afraid to take to the streets in protest. Two days ago there were columns of tractors and clashes with the police in Brussels.

Today there have been demonstrations outside the Senedd in Cardiff. It’s the latest and largest protest so far from Welsh farmers worried about a planned subsidy scheme, requiring 10 per cent of land to be set aside for trees.
