The boss of Asda has described his "shock" as revelations of the horsemeat contamination scandal broke and vowed to leave "no stone unturned" to address problems in the supply chain.

Andy Clarke, chief executive of the UK's second biggest supermarket chain, admitted trust among consumers had been dented, but said his solution would be a "belt and braces" approach to labelling to restore confidence.
