Cornish farmers welcome new rules they hope will give them better milk prices.

Dairies will have to explain what they are paying, and let producers get out of contracts with three months notice.

Ian Johnson from the NFU in Cornwall tells the Westcountry Tonight it is thanks to the milk protests. He said: "It showed the depth of their frustration and their anger and I think everybody was surprised by that. I think that people were just burying their heads in the sand and pretending we didn't have a crisis and that just brought it home to them loud and clear.

"What's it's done is open the windows and let a breath of fresh air through, because the problem we had, was there were all these cobwebs and obscurity and no transparency. Nobody knew what sort of contract they had or what it was worth, in fact in most cases, not worth the paper it was written on"
