A ban on sales of real fur should be considered, a committee of MPs has recommended.

The Environment, Food and Rural Affairs( Efra) Committee investigation into the issue came after some real fur was observed incorrectly labelled as fake.

They described the current labelling of fur products as “not fit for purpose”.

The government said Brexit would allow the UK to “go further” when it came to introducing further restrictions on the fur trade.
