    Angry farmers in the Indian state of West Bengal have been dumping their potato crop on roads in protest against poor prices.

    Farmers say they are selling at a loss because a bumper crop and lack of storage facilities has led to a dramatic fall in prices.

    The West Bengal government is asking neighbouring Indian states to purchase potatoes from them.

    The move comes as prices for other foods in Asia have soared.
