About 200 protesters have blockaded a milk distribution centre in Cheshire, police have said.

Farmers for Action (FFA) are protesting at the Iceland milk distribution centre in Warrington.

The farmers said they are angry at the reduction in the amount of money they receive from major milk processors.

Protester Ian O'Reilly, a farmer from Clitheroe in Lancashire, said: "All we're asking for is a fair amount of profit."
