Halloween pumpkin shortages expected

It is not just the energy sector facing shortages, whether that’s gas or fuel.

All sorts of gaps have appeared on supermarket shelves, from flour to Irn Bru, and now you can add pumpkins to the list – with major supermarkets warning that the Halloween staple will also be hard to come by this year.

The shortage is being blamed on a combination of poor weather conditions and the lack of lorry drivers and farm workers.
