'Farmers for Action' speak out at protest

Dairy farmers are tonight blockading a distribution depot in Somerset in a row over milk prices.

They arrived earlier this evening, bringing their tractors with them. They've been stopping lorries getting in and out of the Morrisons warehouse by the M5 at Bridgwater. They're angry about the price they get for milk which they say is driving them out of business.
