The National Farmers Union in Scotland says the price of lamb is at a seven-year low.

It's calling for supermarkets to stock more British lamb as well as cheaper imports from New Zealand.

Farmers say they're getting 20 per cent less compared to 12 months ago:

It's been quite tough because we were getting reasonable prices this time last year and you're putting a lot of work in to producing the lambs, so to be sending them off and getting lower prices is a wee bit demoralising."
