Farmers focus on Brexit at this years Malvern show

Farmers have urged the Government to keep their interests at heart, when negotiations begin on Monday over Brexit.

They aired their views at the Three Counties Show near Malvern when Michael Gove made his first appearance as environment secretary.

Some said they were anxious about whether they'd still be able to export to Europe.

Others said they were very optimistic about the future outside of the EU.

46 police officers in Malvern in Worcestershire have been given body-worn video cameras.

It is part of a £1 million investment by West Mercia Police.

The force plans to roll the technology out to all of its frontline officers and staff by the end of the year.

Video captures events in a way that cannot be represented in written statements: footage helps to show the real impact a crime can have on victims.

It provides us with high quality evidence to share with colleagues and our partners to give us the best chance to secure a conviction in court.
