A butcher's shop which closed 10 days ago during the Scottish E. coli food poisoning outbreak has been given permission to reopen today.

The go-ahead follows laboratory tests of samples taken from John Mulvaney Butcher's of New Stevenston, Lanarkshire, which closed last Tuesday because of possible cross-contamination of its stock from products supplied by John M Barr, the butcher's shop in Wishaw which has been identified as the main source of the outbreak in which 15 people have died.
