Oh Crumbs! Bread and milk in short supply in Tullamore

Bread and milk are in short supply this evening in Tullamore as these pictures (below) taken in a supermarket in the town this evening show.

People have been stocking up on supplies all day as fears grow that roads may become impassable and stocks may run short in the coming days with the Beast from the East and Storm Emma bearing down on the country.

One shopper who we spoke to this evening commented, "You'd swear there was a war coming," while another stated, "the birds and cats are going to have a feast when all the bread and milk that people bought and don't use is thrown out on Saturday."
