Burgers containing horse meat have been on the menu at a college that trains young farmers in Northern Ireland.

Stormont agriculture minister Michelle O'Neill confirmed that equine DNA had been detected in products supplied to two campuses of the College for Agriculture, Food and Rural Enterprise (CAFRE), at Greenmount in Co Antrim and Loughry in Co Tyrone.

Mrs O'Neill said that all staff and students were notified after the catering contractor Compass received positive results on tests for equine DNA in samples it had sent to be checked.
