This comes as shoppers up and down the UK have been left frustrated at a shortage of food, with blame being placed on the ‘pingdemic’, worker shortages and Brexit.

Supermarket chains have reportedly removed entire aisles to hide shortages.

One reader said: “I went in all the supermarkets yesterday and there were a number of things I couldn’t get including flavoured water. The shelves were bare.”

Another said: “Co-op Amesbury on Boscombe Hill haven’t had milk every time we’ve been in.

“Shelves are looking very empty compared to normal.”

Another added: “Tesco, Aldi and Lidl all have empty shelves. Some things haven’t been in for over a week.”

However, others have been saying that they haven’t seen empty shelves in the city: “Went to Lidl today and shelves full and nothing out of stock”, said one.

Another reader said: “Haven’t been anywhere where the shelves are empty.”
