Farmer protests are set to target supermarkets in an escalation of the row over beef prices.

Farmer's group, Beef Plan Movement says the 'peaceful protests' will begin over the coming days, with stores such as Tesco, Dunnes and SuperValu among those likely to be picketed.

It comes as the second round of talks aimed at resolving the dispute between farmers and meat factories are due to start tomorrow.

However, retailers won't be present, despite repeated requests from farmers that they be included.
