A report from a group funded by millionaire vegans recommends we cut meat consumption. If the beef industry suggested steak with every meal, or big tobacco said smoke 60 a day we'd rubbish it. The same standards are not applied to plant-based claims

I worked with Dianne Oxberry on the Lancs Telegraph Biz Awards more than a decade ago. She was the presenter and me a v young journalist babbling on, but she was grace personified. Very down to earth lady and very sad news this morning.

Are you heading up on Maiden Moor and High Spy as well? Amazing views in to the Newlands Valley from Catbells.
