SLIDESHOW: Farmers step up their milk price protests

Dairy farmers continued to protest last night at the crisis in milk prices.

More than 50 farmers including 15 tractors and a slurry tanker turned out to protest at Sainsbury’s supermarket in Coleraine, as well as Asda and Tesco stores in the town.

The police were on hand to advise protestors that they would face prosecution if they tried to stop supplies entering stores as they did last week in Coleraine when Dale Farm were blocked from entering stores in the town.
