British officials and police raided two premises on Tuesday as part of investigations into a Europe-wide scandal over the labelling of horsemeat as beef, the Food Standards Agency said.

The agency suspended operations at the two places -- a slaughterhouse in Todmorden, northern England and a meat producing factory in Aberystwyth, west Wales -- and seized all meat found in both places, it said in a statement.
