Supermarkets 'weeks away from gap in shelves' as supply chains fail 'It's at crisis


Food shortages could worsen in the coming weeks and months due to staff shortages in various sectors within the food industry. There is a lack of labourers and lorry drivers due to a number of factors.

A shortage of lorry drivers in Britain has reached "crisis point", industry bosses have warned.

The lack of workers has already caused supermarkets to miss deliveries on products.

If this issue persists, supermarkets could be "weeks away" from empty shelves.

Industry leaders have written to Boris Johnson to inform him that there is now a shortage of over 100,000 drivers.
