Fruit picks have more than doubled this year due to a shortage of British and Eastern European workers combined with the Brexit and Covenant epidemics.

Mr Taylor said: “95% of the country’s produce and packaged fruits and products are made in Eastern Europe.
People who have not been eligible since the end of June, at least, will not be able to work.
