Tesco is to stop sourcing products from Zimbabwe as the political crisis there escalates, the retailer announced tonight.

Tesco said it had taken the "difficult decision" to cut trade "until there is an end to the current political crisis".

A spokesman said: "We also attach a very high priority to ensuring that this decision does least harm to the workers and their dependants who have supplied us from Zimbabwe.

"We cannot continue to support them through trade, but are urgently finding ways to support them by other means."
