SHEEP meat was being sold as goat in at least 11 cases, an investigation by Trading Standards found.

Officers went undercover to make test purchases after a consumer complained the goat meat he bought was actually sheep.

Of the 11 cases in West Sussex, six were linked to a problem with the wholesaler or abattoir rather than the retailer.

Peter Aston, Trading Standards team manager, said: ‘Once butchered, goat meat is very difficult to tell from mutton or lamb.’
