Supermarkets Aldi and Morrisons have agreed to pay farmers more for their milk following days of protests and negotiations.

Aldi will pay farmers 28p per litre from Monday, whilst Morrisons will pay 26p as well as creating their own "Morrisons Milk For Farmers" which 10p per litre will be paid.

Yesterday, Asda also agreed to up the price it paid to suppliers.

Farming unions have claimed milk is sold in supermarkets for less than it costs to produce, shortchanging the supplier by up to 10p per litre.
