East of England Co-op will become the first major retailer to sell food beyond its "best before" dates.

The chain's 125 stores in East Anglia will sell dried foods and tinned products for just 10p in a bid to cut food waste.

Wrap, the waste and recycling advisory body, said the Co-op's "bold" move complied with food safety standards.

The UK throws away 7.3 million tonnes of food every year, according to the Food Standards Agency.
