Lincolnshire based specialist agricultural accountants Moore Thompson say a deal to lift a 26-year ban on exporting British beef and lamb to Russia is a major boost for Fenland farmers.

The company, which has branches in Spalding and in the Deepings, reported that the Government had announced that Russia had agreed to lift the ban.

The ban was put in place by the Soviet Union in 1986 following the first BSE outbreak in the UK. The worldwide ban was lifted in 2006, but was kept in place by Russia.
