Proposed 'mass action' against wheat experiment

Proposed 'mass action' is to take place today in Harpenden, Hertfordshire by Take the Flour Back campaign group.

The protest is against the experimental trial of wheat, which has been genetically modified (GM) to repel aphid attack - the most destructive insect pests on cultivated plants.

Bakers, farmers, allotment holders and beekeepers are thought to be turning out to voice their opposition to GM crops at Midday.
