A farmer from Llanfairfechan has launched a campaign to have a local produce aisle in every supermarket.

Gareth Wyn Jones wants all supermarkets to stock an aisle of homegrown produce to help the local economy and give consumers a choice of what they buy.

Mr Wyn Jones said: "I got the idea a few years ago while in France when all the supermarkets there were stocking local produce. Asda and Tesco have already tweeted me to say they will consider the idea."
