Walkers said production is running on a 'reduced scale'.

In a statement, the crisp giant told the BBC the company is doing “everything” they can to return the supply to normal.

Bosses said: "Our sites are still making crisps and snacks, but at a reduced scale.

"We're doing everything we can to increase production and get people's favourites back on shelves. We're very sorry for the inconvenience caused."
