John Edward Hollister Montagu, the 11th Earl of Sandwich and direct descendant of the man famed for popularising the snack, has offered his thoughts after news emerged that a sandwich factory was about to offer jobs to migrant workers...

Greencore, a company that supplies Tesco and Marks & Spencer have been recruiting employees from Hungary after saying they could not find suitable sandwich-makers in the UK. Cue outrage.

But the Earl, who is also the director of a sandwich-making firm, explained to the BBC that he couldn't see the problem.
