Tesco said that the sale of strawberries, which coincides with predicted warmer weather this weekend, will begin a week earlier than last year.

The strawberries going on sale have been grown in Chichester, West Sussex.

Tesco strawberry buyer Simon Mandelbaum said: "We are a nation of strawberry-lovers who cannot get our hands on the English crop quick enough and this year will be no exception - we are expecting a mad rush.

"Good levels of sunshine and unseasonably warm weather so far in March have been key for our growers, giving them an early crop."
