The Independent says MORE than nine in 10 people have seen their living costs rise over the past month, as the price of food, fuel and energy continues to surge, pushing inflation to its highest level in four decades.

The number of people cutting back on food has risen sharply with 41 per cent of people reducing the amount they buy, compared to 8 per cent in September, a poll by the Office for National Statistics found.
