While chartered flights are currently bringing in a handful of Romanians to do fruit and veg picking jobs, this is the plea from the British agricultural industry to homegrown workers.  At a time when so many of us are laid off, stuck inside our homes or worse still unemployed, what better time is there to recruit British workers in such a crucial industry?  After all, there is nothing more important than the food on our plate.

Yes, it's hard work.  Yes, it's for the minimum wage.  And yes, it's seasonal.  But the sun is out and you'd be making a vital contribution to the national effort at a time when food shortages have never been more real.  A million people volunteered to help the NHS, so there's no reason why we can't dig for victory too.
