Fertiliser bomb trial highlights need for farmers to keep fertiliser secure

Farmers are reminded that they need to make sure that their fertiliser is secure.

The reminder comes as five men are convicted of an al-Qaeda-linked bomb plot in Britain which could have killed hundreds.

The men were planning to target a shopping centre or nightclub with a fertiliser bomb made from 600kg of ammonium nitrate.

The National Counter Terrorism Security Office has issued advice to growers about steps they should take to keep their fertiliser safe.
