What caused empty-shelf crisis and how can it be fixed? Eight key questions answered

The Mirror says: Shoppers up and down Britain are seeing empty shelves and dwindling stock of food and everyday essentials.

 

Supermarket bosses are lining up to warn of everything from cancelled Christmases to stores running out of bottled water.

A lorry driver shortage is one of the main culprits, with many people pointing the finger at Brexit.

But as the Mirror’s Head of Business, Graham Hiscott, explains, a combination of factors has driven down lorry driver numbers in the UK, including several that pre-date Britain’s disastrous exit from the EU.

So just how bad is it? What is the impact? Is anything being done and what other factors are causing empty shelves, other than the obvious ones?
