Food price alert after rains

There are warnings that we will all have to pay a little more for our food at supermarkets over the coming year because of last year's heavy rainfall.

The bad weather had a severe impact on farming with the rain destroying millions of pounds of crops in the South-east alone, leaving behind fears that this year's _harvests could be largely reduced, triggering shortages of some foods.

Farmers are being warned that they need to develop new growing methods - or face the problems, financial and otherwise that could follow more bad weather. John Ryall reports.
