HOMEMADE sausages from a Hampshire school have been given the royal stamp of approval after being snapped up by Prince Charles.

The Prince of Wales will soon be pigging out on bangers made by students from Priestlands School in Lymington after placing an order with the school.

A year after students set up their own Good Lifestyle farm at the school, the first batch of Priestlands Porkers Snags have hit the shelves.

Priestlands hit the headlines a year ago when it signed up Saddleback sows Oggy and Raddish to make the school more environmentally friendly.

Students had double the reason to celebrate last week when the prize porkers both gave birth to a total of 13 piglets.

Priestlands Porkers Snags, made from pigs reared at the school, are now being sold at Warborne Organic Farm at Portmore near Lymington at £5.80 a kilogram.
