Fake goats cheese made from sheep's milk has been found on sale in supermarkets following a shortage of milk from the animals.

Consumer group Which? commissioned tests on 76 goats cheese samples from supermarkets, delis and markets sold at eight UK locations.

In six cases, half or more of the product was found to be sheep's cheese.

Three of these contained more than 80% sheep's cheese, three contained more than 50%, while three other cheeses contained smaller amounts - around 5%.

Which? said it would be following up its findings with the companies involved and the Food Standards Agency.
