Shop at Southport's local butcher councillor urges after horse meat fiasco

Iain Brodie Browne has urged  Southport people to shop locally and use the towns family butchers in the wake of the horse meat scandal

Iain, a Birkdale Councillor and Lib Dem leader, said

'We have excellent local butchers in the town and buying locally is the best way to know where your dinner has come from.'

Over the past two weeks, Europe has been swept into a panic after horsemeat was discovered in beef products in the UK’s supermarkets.

Horsemeat has also been found in branded and supermarket-own ready meals, including lasagne and spaghetti bolognese. British farmers operate to very high animal welfare standards. Buying meat products with the red tractor logo confirming that it is British product is a good idea.

"If people want to be confident about the meat they're eating they should buy fresh British meat, preferably from our local butchers'
