Around 700,000 eggs from Dutch farms linked to a contamination scare have been sent to the UK.

The eggs come from farms implicated in the use of fipronil, used in veterinary products to treat things like ticks and fleas.

Hens have been kept in illegal cages across farms in India.

The World Health Organisation considers the insecticide to be “moderately hazardous” and says it can have dangerous effects on the the liver, kidneys and thyroid glands.

A police operation has been ongoing into the situation with a number of raids taking place. During one raid, two men were arrested in connection with the contamination.

It has subsequently sparked a mass recall across the country.
