Weston Foodbank is in desperate need of carrier bags, as the 5p charge means it is running low.

The Weston-super-Mare charity feeds more than 310 people each month and uses between two and four bags with each of its emergency parcels.

Since the 5p bag charge came in, its donations no longer tend to be made in plastic carriers.

The charity needs bags to be donated at its North Street base.
