"Food price inflation will only get worse, as the rising global population and climate change add to the volatility faced by British consumers, the government’s chief scientist warned today.

"During a radio discussion about food prices, he said much of world’s agriculture was dependent on stable weather patterns, which have undergone 'major changes' in recent years.

"This, he warned, meant that food supplies were 'extremely fragile' and that reserves were subjected to extremes in conditions caused by climate change."
