The open letter from the British Retail Consortium stated that a chaotic exit from the EU under WTO terms would cause major disruption and increased food prices.
Fruit, veg and other perishables would be the most widely affected due to border checks and delays at Calais, meaning that if you enjoy a BLT on a Sunday morning, you might just have to settle for the B.
Last year, the government had ensured to the public that 'adequate food' would be available, but this fresh warning from supermarkets should give us more cause for concern.

The clip has since been shared all over social media and people are pretty dumbfounded by what they saw.
