Million of Brits are going without meals in a growing food crisis amid the coronavirus lockdown, according to a charity.

Some 1.5 million people have reported going a whole day without eating since the draconian measures were introduced three weeks ago, because they didn’t have enough in their cupboards and fridges.

The figures, from a YouGov poll commissioned by the Food Foundation and the FFCC (Food, Farming and Countryside Commission), also show six per cent of the population – more than three million people – have had someone in their household skip dinner.
