An MP is encouraging people to work as fruit and vegetable pickers, to keep the supply of food going during the Coronavirus pandemic.

A “serious labour shortage” as the picking season starts has followed travel and movement restrictions caused by the pandemic.

The British Grower’s Association says farmers need 70,000 pickers nationally, but there are fears that farmers will struggle to find workers as most of the work is usually carried out by seasonal migrant workers.

George Eustice, the Environment Secretary and Cornish MP, said recruitment efforts are already under way by the industry, but he’s encouraging as many people as possible to sign up for jobs.

The key workers will still adhere to social distancing rules in the fields.

The National Farmer’s Union (NFU) said temporary workers would “Contribute to the health of the nation”.

GPs in Cornwall are adapting to working under the coronavirus conditions by holding meetings by video link.

They're asking patients to make contact online and in some cases even send in photos to help with diagnosis.

Dr Penny Atkinson, who works in Liskeard said, “it's a very challenging time, I would say, it's something we've never experienced before and we are on a very, very steep learning curve. But, we've all got amazing staff in all our surgeries, the public have been absolutely incredible in supporting us. So it's challenging but at the same time it's actually very inspiring to work in east Cornwall in general practice,” Doctor Atkinson said.

Aldi, Morrisons and Waitrose are easing restrictions on some of their products; restrictions which were imposed in the wake of stockpiling in early March.

All the major supermarkets restricted their customers to buying fixed amounts of individual items to keep shelves full.

Aldi is now scrapping limits completely on all but a few items.

Aldi customers will only be allowed to purchase four of some products – including soap, toilet roll and alcohol – and two of antibacterial hand gel, UHT milk and baby formula.

Morrisons is upping the limits on some items from three to four per customer and removing some of them altogether to make it easier for people to donate to food banks.

Waitrose is removing its cap on all fresh food, so meat fish and other fresh goods can now be purchased freely along with fruit and vegetables, which were never restricted.

Meanwhile, grocery sales in the UK were at record levels in March.

Staff at a zoo have decided to self-isolate with the animals so they can continue to look after them.

Paradise Park in Cornwall temporarily closed on 21 March due to the pandemic.

One of the four keepers, Izzy Saralis-Wheatly, said it was strange leaving her family to live at the zoo but "we're super busy all the time which is a good distraction".

Ms Saralis-Wheatly said she was keeping in touch with her family using video messaging and "we've all been here for each other when it's got tough".

She added, "If the other zookeepers have to self-isolate, hopefully the four of us could keep it running as best as we could."

She said she volunteered to move in and care for the animals before the government said people should stay at home, because she did not want to be the only person leaving her home to go to work.

"Most of us live with a high-risk person," she added.

The four keepers are being supported by other staff members who come in at different times of day to ensure they keep separate from the staff who have moved in.

"With it being Easter,” she added, “we are at our lowest point in terms of money and feeding animals costs ridiculous amounts," she added.

"This is usually a really important time of year with lots of visitors."

The zoo is appealing for donations to help feed the animals, which costs about £1,500 a week.
