British supermarkets impose food rations as shelves lay empty

Supermarkets across the UK have started imposing food rations after supply issues have left shelves bare.

Asda customers will be limited to buying just three items of certain fruits and vegetables, while Morrisons said it would be introducing limits of two selected items.
