Farmers focus on Brexit at this years Malvern show

Farmers have urged the Government to keep their interests at heart, when negotiations begin on Monday over Brexit.

They aired their views at the Three Counties Show near Malvern when Michael Gove made his first appearance as environment secretary.

Some said they were anxious about whether they'd still be able to export to Europe.

Others said they were very optimistic about the future outside of the EU.

Midlands MP Ken Clarke: Future of Brexit Britain is a 'wonderland fantasy'

Midlands MPs have today debated the process by which the UK will leave the European Union following the triggering of Article 50.

Speaking in Parliament, the East Midlands Conservative MP Ken Clarke said he will not back the Article 50 bill to trigger Brexit, describing visions of a post-EU future as a "wonderland" fantasy.

Ken Clarke's Rushcliffe constituency was the only area in Nottinghamshire that voted to stay in the EU.

In the same debate, Anna Soubry, the MP for Broxtowe, joined others who expressed their concern at the 'lack of detail' the government has given ahead of the talks with the EU.
