After the longest heatwave for more than 40 years it's been a boom and bust picture for the regions farmers. Some arable farmers are watching crops shrivel and die in the scorching sun but soft fruit growers and wine makers are enjoying a bumper year. Natalie Gray reports :
Six weeks of little or no rain and scorching temperatures means Nicholas Dean's field of spring barley is not coping at all well. He is a managing partner at Bure Farm Services farming 800 hectares near Wroxham in Norfolk.
But the heatwave is good news for soft fruit growers and wine makers in the East.
