Stilton's bid to make the cheese knocked back

The cheese makers in the village of Stilton are working out their next move, after having their latest bid to make the cheese in their own name knocked back, by the government.

As it stands, the law states that Stilton can only be produced in Leicestershire, Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire, where it's claimed the cheese originated.

But the villagers are not leaving it at that, saying the reasons for Defra's refusal are not justified. They will not stop until Stilton is made in Stilton.
