Lynda Mayall, 61, said she bought a box to supplement her stocks of tinned food and toilet roll as she feared there may be "chaos" in the months after Brexit. A government spokesperson said there was "no need" to stockpile any of the items in the box.

James Blake said since his company, Emergency Food Storage UK, launched the Brexit Box last month he had sold more than 600. "We tried to put a box together that gives people the basics they would need, it's got 60 portions of main meals plus 48 portions of meat, a water filter and a fire starter in case they need to heat the water," he said.
