Cauliflower crisis: growers destroy year's supply

Farmers in East Kent have spoken of their anger at having to destroy a year's worth of crops by ploughing them back into the soil.

The food's perfectly edible, but there's no market for it.

Supermarkets have been stocking imported vegetables and farmers say they can't compete with the foreign imports.

They blame rigid supermarket supply policies intended to avoid sudden shortages that may drive away shoppers.

They say they're on the edge of despair. As Tony Green reports.

Tony spoke to farmer Geoffrey Philpott.
