I didn't know it before today, but apparently the Cumbria flooding has had a serious impact on biscuit production. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-cumbria-35696027 "Britain has been experiencing a severe shortage of biscuits - an unforeseen and yet, for some, very serious impact of the recent Cumbria floods. How have we coped? Storms Desmond and Eva left swathes of Cumbria, Lancashire and Yorkshire under water, causing widespread personal pain and huge economic cost. They also submerged Carlisle's McVitie's factory ovens, halting production of custard creams, bourbons, ginger nuts and table water biscuits. Biscuits started disappearing from shop shelves. A nation which had looked on in sympathetic disbelief began to feel the crisis bite closer to home." Being someone who doesn't often buys biscuits, this disaster hasn't affected me, but I do know there are folk out there who rely on biscuits to see them through the day. Has it been tough out there?
