Campaigners from the village of Stilton in Peterborough are taking their fight to the government to be allowed to use the name Stilton for their cheese.

Under EU law Stilton can only be made by a few dairies in the East Midlands, where it is believed to have originated.

The Cambridgeshire MP Shailesh Vara is backing calls for a review of the decision.
