The Asda supermarket chain announced it was giving thousands of apples away - because European law forbade their sale.

Asda will give an English Cox to the first 1,000 children visiting each of its stores up and down the country on Saturday. The gesture is in protest at EU legislation which says apples with a diameter of less than 55mm are too small to be sold.
