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.

Figures also show the price of wheat is up almost a third - 29 per cent - compared with a year ago. Andrew Pate reports.
