Red Tractor says their reputation has been damaged by secret filming at a pig farm. The footage – filmed by vegan campaign group, Viva at Flat House Farm, in Leicestershire – appeared to show animals being mistreated and sick and dying pigs lying on the floor. The farm had been part of the Red Tractor scheme which is meant to guarantee welfare standards.  But it lost accreditation when concerns were raised about the condition of pigs a month ago. The farm told us they wouldn’t be commenting on the footage.
