Third of parents believe they have served horsemeat

A third of parents (33.6%) believe they may have served horsemeat to their children, a new poll reveals.

It suggests that the scandal has led many families to change their eating and shopping habits, with some no longer buying processed meat or eating ready meals.

The poll, by parenting website Netmums, questioned 1,293 parents for their views of the horse meat scandal.
