Hundreds of farmers have blockaded processing plants into the early hours of the morning in a protest against the price they are paid for milk.


Supporters of the organisation Farmers for Action (FFA) used tractors to block a Robert Wiseman Dairy processing plant near Bridgwater, Somerset, on Thursday night, while other farmers gathered outside an Arla plant in Ashby-de-la-Zouch, Leicestershire, and another plant in Leeds.
