Supermarkets only hold about a weeks worth of stock. When we take back control of our borders, the lorries will be held up for weeks. Within a fortnight the shelves will be empty. What foods should I be stocking up on now which has a shelf life beyond the leave date of April 2019?

Start with non-perishables - toilet rolls, cleaning stuff, toiletries. Plus some foods which last forever - sugar, salt, soy sauce, honey.

Then buy dried foods which last 5 - 10 years - rice, pasta, dried beans, oats. Think about how you're going to store them.

Last buy tinned stuff which lasts about 3 years.

Don't forget water, which lasts about 1 year.

Remember to rotate the perishables.
