BARTERED LIVES - An Animal Aid investigation

This is Animal Aid's third major report on the treatment of animals at English livestock markets. There are more than 100 such sales around the country, through which around 14 million pigs, sheep and cattle pass every year - either directly en route to a slaughterhouse or to another farmer for further fattening. An additional 8 million animals pass through Scottish and Welsh sales.

The report is supported by undercover video footage.
