Damp weather over the weekend hampers British farmers

Damp weather over the weekend has hampered the efforts of British farmers who are trying to finish harvesting.

The lack of sunshine throughout the summer has already prevented many crops from ripening properly.

But while it's been raining too much in the UK, there hasn't been enough rain in Russia and the United States.

The wholesale price of grain has already soared, and we're being warned to expect further increases in the price of food.
