Milk, bread, eggs and salt were in high demand in Penistone
Milk, bread and other essentials have been in short supply in a South Yorkshire town after heavy snowfall led shoppers to stock up.
Supermarket shelves in Penistone, near Barnsley, were left bare with milk, bread, eggs and salt most sought after.
Shop staff said one shopper bought 17 loaves of bread and another got six packets of salt on Wednesday.
A local woman said: "It's always been the same, as soon as the snow comes, they panic buy in Penistone."
An elderly man said he was surviving on convenience food.
This man said he was 'living on pot noodles'
"No bread, no milk. I'm having Pot Noodles," he said.
"I'm living on Pot Noodles because I'm managing to get them, but that's it."
Signs of shoppers stocking up in the town's two supermarkets began on Wednesday morning after heavy snow fell overnight.
"Half past seven yesterday morning, it was absolutely rammed. People were just panic buying," one man said.
Another resident said: "Every time we get a flake of snow in Penistone, all the bread and milk goes, so you get used to that."
Deliveries continued to get through to the stores despite the weather. Further snow and freezing weather is forecast for the rest of the week.
