Why chip shop owners are raising prices


The price of some basic foods are set to rise this winter because of a poor potato harvest.

Fish and chip ship owners are already having to increase their prices after a wet summer reduced the size, quality and quantity of potatoes across the country.

The sodden conditions also mean farmers are still struggling to get their crops out of the ground.

This time last year, the harvest was nearly over.
