Access to countryside

As visitor numbers to the countryside continue to rise, and with a number of cattle-related deaths, NFU Deputy President Stuart Roberts was interviewed on BBC You & Yours, BBC 5Live's Emma Barnett programme, Daily Mail, BBC News and The Times reassuring the public that they need not be fearful of coming to the countryside but to stay alert and follow the Countryside Code.

He also highlighted the NFU's work campaigning for an amendment to the Highways Act 1980 to allow farmers to divert public rights of way where livestock are present to help keep people safe while enjoying the countryside.
