Jeremy Corbyn visits sheep farm as he promises to stop 'no-deal carnage'

Jeremy Corbyn visits a sheep farm in Castlerigg, Cumbria, where he pledged to do "everything necessary" to stop "no-deal carnage" amid fears a no-deal Brexit could lead to the slaughter of millions of lambs.

The Labour leader visited the farm in Keswick after outlining that the potential threat of leaving the EU without a deal would be a "reckless and unnecessary act".

British farmers could face an EU tariff of 46% on lamb leading to fears that, if the lamb meat cannot be sold, there will be culls of millions of sheep to prevent them dying of starvation.

The Government, however, says culling livestock is "absolutely not on the cards".
