A North Yorkshire farmer says the problems posed by climate change have left him “exhausted” – and called for a “re-think” over how food is supplied and priced.

Richard Bramley, an arable farmer in Kelfield near Selby, said flooding and warm weather in recent years are “colossal issues” for British farmers.

He added that the ongoing war in Ukraine creates “further distortions in agricultural trade”, which comes as agricultural and environmental policy is “still finding its feet” after Brexit.

Mr Bramley is an environment forum chair for the National Farmers' Union and has been collaborating with the non-profit Round Our Way to raise awareness of some of the impacts of climate change.
