THE Lord Mayor of the City of London made the annual official visit to the world-famous Smithfield meat market on Wednesday.

Lord Mayor David Lewis's visit coincided with an inspection by the new Food Standards Agency.

He met the meat traders, but that was nothing new to him. He owns a farm in Cothi Valley in Wales and is also a lamb expert himself.

The Lord Mayor was escorted around the market by the Smithfield traders' chairman Greg Lawrence, who later hosted a breakfast at Butchers' Hall.

Smithfield is managed by the City Corporation, Britain's largest market authority which also includes Billingsgate fish market and New Spitalfields fruit and vegetable market, safeguarding public interests going back centuries.
