Defra under fire after BSE case verdict

UK - The High Court in London has condemned the "manifestly unfair" way the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs treated a farming couple suspected of breaking anti-BSE feed rules with their beef herd.
In one of the strongest critical judgments to be given against a government department, a senior judge criticised Defra’s "inexcusable" behaviour, following suspicions that the couple had fed pet food, containing ingredients banned to ruminants, to their herd.
