The head of the government agency tackling the UK's response to the millennium bug has urged people to stock up on food over the 1999-2000 new year period, reports The Scotsman (p5).

Gwynneth Flower, of Action 2000, said householders should stockpile long-life and tinned foods and drinks to last for up to two weeks.

She said: 'We are talking about people having a judicious amount of surplus food in their kitchen cupboards. Anyone sensible would plan for this.'
