Mild winter hits rhubarb crops

Most people would be glad of a mild winter, but it is causing problems for rhubarb growers.

You may well have noticed that many flowers are blooming early this year, because of the unseasonably warm weather.

It is not just flowers which are affected by the mild climate, it is vegetables too.

One of our favourite puddings - rhubarb - depends on frost to nourish its roots, and there has not been much of that lately.

The BBC's Danny Savage reports from West Yorkshire, on the Great British Rhubarb Shortage.
