Another suspected illegal animal slaughterhouse and meat cutting plant has been uncovered in south Armagh, the Food Standards Agency has said.

Meat produced at the operation discovered in the Newry and Mourne area was allegedly done so without official hygiene checks, the agency added.

Searches of two properties in Forkhill and one in the Bessbrook area were carried out. However, police said “no illegal activity” was discovered at the Bessbrook site.
