The conflict in Ukraine is a long way from the UK but it means prices for the ingredients of one of the nation's favourite dishes are soaring.

The cost of white fish, potatoes, peas and the energy to cook them with have all sky-rocketed.

One chip shop says they've seen "hundreds" of shops which haven't been able to cope with price increases.

The BBC's business editor, Simon Jack, went to find out how firms are dealing with it.
