A cafe that uses only food which would otherwise have been thrown away, because it is either past its sell by date or bruised or misshapen, is being set up on Tyneside.
Food campaigner Duncan Fairbrother collects the produce from places like the Grainger Market in Newcastle. He then serves it up with the help of dozens of volunteers, in a pop-up cafe where customers pay what they want for it, as Derek Proud reports:

The North York Moors and coast is laying claim to the title of "Britain’s Capital of Cake" in recognition of the myriad different types of cake served in the area, the regional specialities and places where they are served. The tourism initiative launches today and will raise the profile of the multitude of cake-eating locations that include cafés, tea parlours, holiday cottages, abbeys, woods, waterfalls, walled gardens, seashore, stately homes and village greens. The North York Moors Tourism Network, a voluntary organisation supporting more than 400 tourism and related businesses, together with the North York Moors National Park Authority (NYMNPA), are leading the ‘capital’ claim.
