We have more of this yet to come I fear! This story tells us:

A shortage of fruit pickers means British farmers are having to accept anyone with “two hands and two legs”, a recruitment agency has said.

More than half of recruiters could not find fruit and vegetable pickers even in the “quiet” first months of this year, according to the Association of Labour Providers.

Unpicked fruit has been left to rot in the fields as a result.

Ninety-nine per cent of seasonal workers on British farms come from Eastern Europe, with many arriving from Romania and Bulgaria.
