The Government has given emergency preparation advice against pandemic-style panic buying after encouraging Britons on a new website to have three days’ worth of tinned food and water.

The site Prepare went live on Wednesday (May 22) with Deputy Prime Minister Oliver Dowden advising people how to prepare for flooding, power outages, another pandemic, or a biosecurity crisis.

The emergency preparation advice to Brits to stock up on other emergency items such as wind-up torches, spare batteries, and a wind-up radio.

Sky News reported Mr Dowden saying measures are “about sensible safeguards, not stockpiling” and the website offers “practical information for households to make those preparations”.

Andrew Opie, director of Food and Sustainability at the British Retail Consortium, told MailOnline: “Retailers did an excellent job ensuring the country had access to food and other necessities throughout the pandemic, and we are confident they will rise to future challenges.

“While it is sensible to have some additional food at home, most households will find they already have sufficient non-perishables sitting in the cupboard.

The Prepare website encourages people to learn more about their area’s risks and sign up for alerts and warnings.
