EU farmers protest at milk prices


Farmers from across the European Union have protested in Brussels over the plunging price of milk.

They say they are struggling to survive and are calling for emergency funds.

European ministers were convened for a crisis meeting to discuss the region's dairy industry, but only agreed to set up a panel of experts to look at the problem.

Mark Sanders reports from Brussels.
