The government should buy more British food, Sir Keir Starmer will say in a speech to the National Farmers Union conference.

The Labour leader will also argue that the idea his party is anti-countryside is “more perception than reality”.

Meanwhile NFU leader Minette Batters will urge politicians to address the gap between urban and rural areas.

Environment Secretary George Eustice is also expected to address the conference.
