The awful news spread across social media this morning, and now the country’s homeless have joined the discussion.

Warren Smith, 36, a homeless man in Suffolk, said: “This really is awful. The idea that some middle-class family can not get hold of courgettes is heartbreaking.”

Speaking from his freezing shop doorway while being forced to beg for change to buy something to eat, he added: “I dare not even think what it would be like for Waitrose shoppers if aubergines are next.”

Retail experts said the price of courgettes had quadrupled, making life particularly hard for middle-class shoppers across Britain.

One man, Jordan Williams, 27, said: “I like to eat healthily between visits to the gym and barbers, and don’t know how I will cope without courgettes.”
