Could vertical farms cultivate London's future food

The Business minister Kelly Tolhurst has been at a vertical farm in South East London to see how indoor crop centres can be used to help produce food more efficiently.

Less land is used than traditional farming, and the climate is controlled, to allow growing to take place, pest free, all year round.
