Environment minister Owen Paterson has urged the UK to lead a European farming revolution and become a global leader on GM crops.

The minister said genetically modified crops would reduce fertiliser and chemical inputs and improve efficiency.

Anti-GM groups criticised his support for the crops, saying there was no evidence they would deliver for farmers or offer food security.
