    Not that easy to see, but looks like Pneumonia to me , see it regularly in sheep/cattle/pigs . This looks like the early stage (grey hepatisation ) ,

    Thank you for your reply Cumbrian, you was right. I Took it to my local abattoirs and asked the meat inspector to have a look. Early stages of Pneumonia. You was spot on.
