Pacific salmon, Rural mental health, Milk prices
The Environment Agency is investigating the arrival of a non-native species of fish which has arrived in the UK. The Pacific salmon normally lives thousands of miles away, but has started to populate UK rivers. It was found in Scotland in the summer, raising concerns that it might have an impact on the native Atlantic salmon. Charlotte Smith asks whether we need to be concerned.
We meet a farmer who has recovered after an episode of depression which led him to contemplate suicide. He has now teamed up with the psychiatrist who helped him to get well again, and together they're working to raise awareness of mental health issues in rural communities.
What's happening with milk prices? After recovering from the extreme lows of the last couple of years, the prices paid to farmers by some processors have now dropped again. Is this a sign of things to come?
