European leaders have voted to ban bee harming pesticides across the continent. The move, which will restrict the use of certain types of pesticides for two years unless decisive new information becomes available, is an effort to protect the dwindling honeybee population.

The BBC’s Nigel Cassidy joins Marketplace Morning Report host Jeremy Hobson from London with the details.
