RT published this video item, entitled “Brexit bites | Northern Ireland shoppers face empty shelves” – below is their description.
Shoppers in Northern Ireland are facing empty shelves at supermarkets as new customs paperwork has left major retailers facing shortages across hundreds of products due to the post-Brexit trade agreement.
High-demand products such as fresh fruit, vegetables, and meat are among the products worst affected, as food suppliers face delays getting goods to the UK region.
Major British retailers, including Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Marks & Spencer, have struggled to adapt their supply chains since new customs rules came into effect on January 1, when the Brexit transition period drew to a close.

Geopolitically, Ireland is divided between the Republic of Ireland (officially named Ireland), which covers five-sixths of the island, and Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom. As of 2016, 4.8 million people live in the Republic of Ireland, and 1.8 million live in Northern Ireland.
The Irish climate is influenced by the Atlantic Ocean and thus very moderate, and winters are milder than expected for such a northerly area, although summers are cooler than those in continental Europe. Rainfall and cloud cover are abundant.
A strong Irish culture exists, as expressed through Gaelic games, Irish music and the Irish language. The island’s culture shares many features with that of Great Britain, including the English language, and sports such as association football, rugby, horse racing, and golf.
