      Genetically modified crops could be grown in the UK from next year after the EU ministers relaxed laws on the controversial farming method.

      Maize that has been engineered to resist weedkiller is the first to be approved but all commercial GM crops will not be given the green light for another 10 years.

      Owen Patterson, the Environment Secretary, has long supported the introduction of GM crops in the UK and voted in favour of the changes on Thursday.
