Lidl is the latest supermarket to introduce limits on sales of certain fruit and vegetables due to shortages of fresh produce.

The company is putting limits of three per customer on sales of peppers, tomatoes and cucumbers, due to “a recent increase in demand”.

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

Supermarkets are facing problems after extreme weather hit harvests abroad.
