Metro – Cost of living crisis: Inflation hits home 

Desperate parents have accidentally poisoned their children by turning off fridges and freezers in an effort to avoid rising energy costs, Metro reports.

Truro Food Bank in Cornwall says kids are getting upset stomachs because their mums and dads can’t afford to chill their food.

The food bank said some children are also going into school in unwashed clothes as parents desperately try to save on energy usage.

Staff at the food bank say donations have fallen and demand for food has risen – putting further strain on low income communities.
