The discount supermarket follows rivals by restricting sales of certain fruit and vegetables.
Lidl is the latest supermarket to introduce limits on sales of certain fruit and vegetables due to shortages of fresh produce.

It follows similar moves by Tesco, Aldi, Asda and Morrisons, with some consumers facing empty shelves.
