UK criticised over illegal timber

The UK is the world’s third largest importer of illegal timber, according to a report from conservation body WWF.

The charity has called on ministers to press for European legislation to prevent the import of illegal timber.

WWF says most illegal timber, wood from trees felled against local regulations or exported without duty being paid, came through Russia and Scandinavia.
