Warning that volcanic cloud may lead to soaring food prices

SHOPPERS could face food shortages and soaring prices because of the flight ban due to volcanic ash, experts said last night.

Millions of pounds’ worth of perishable goods including fruit, vegetables and flowers cannot be flown into Britain becuase of the volcanic ash.

The delay could mean a shortfall of goods such as asparagus, grapes,green onions, lettuce, pre-packed fruit salads and flowers.

But supermarkets Sainsbury and Tesco said they had not been hit so far as only a small proportion of their products are flown in.
