BRITAIN is facing a post-Brexit prawn crisis.

Greenland is diverting supplies to Europe — leaving a shortage for shops and sandwich makers.
They want ministers to cut the temporary 20 per cent tariff to safeguard the grub and protect 2,000 jobs.
Greenland’s prawns account for 60 per cent of our market.
Henrik Leth, of supplier Polar Seafood, said: “Our UK stocks could soon run out.
“Without Greenland we might be left with inconsistent quality and no guarantee on volume.”
