The food fraud scandal escalated last night when Tesco admitted the ‘minced beef’ in its frozen bolognese is up to 100 per cent horsemeat.

The value range ready-meal was made by Comigel, a French firm also linked to contaminated products at Findus and Aldi.

Horses slaughtered in Romania are thought to have been used by Comigel to make meals distributed across Britain and Europe, raising fears the problems are more widespread than first thought.

The Tesco revelation came as:

- Ministers warned schools and hospitals to check their meals;

- The Government was branded incompetent in heated exchanges in the Commons;

- Labour claimed up to 70,000 horses are unaccounted for in Northern Ireland and could have entered the European food chain;

- A Romanian abattoir that supplied some of the original horse meat angrily denied claims it had mis-sold the product as beef.
