Beef farmers continue protests

Protests by farmers are continuing outside meat factories across Ireland calling on processors to increase the rates they are paying for beef.

The 48-hour demonstrations began at 3pm on Sunday afternoon and will continue until 3pm today.

Last night, the Minister for Agriculture Simon Coveney said he hopes tomorrow's beef forum will bring the tensions to a close.
