Cheesey wheeze

Wallace and Gromit's favourite food maker is to ask the European Union to help to preserve the integrity of its Yorkshire dairy produce.
It is 10 years since the Plasticine characters alluded to the delights of Wensleydale cheese in the film A Close Shave.
The largest producer, Wensleydale Dairy Products, based in Hawes, North Yorks, with sales of around £14 million, announced yesterday that it was seeking Protected Designation of Origin status.
If successful, it would prevent anyone outside a specified area of Wensleydale from using the name Real Yorkshire Wensleydale Cheese.
