It was the wettest summer for 100 years that saw, what seemed like, endless days of rain and our resorts and beaches deserted. And, now, this year's poor weather is also being blamed for a rise in the cost of our weekly supermarket shop.
The National Farmers' Union says the rainy summer has taken its toll on the amount of food produced - and the quality of food and grain. Wheat yields are down by almost 15% - and productivity is down to levels last seen in the 1980s.
Figures also show the price of wheat is up almost a third - 29 per cent - compared with a year ago. Andrew Pate reports.
