    A Northland courgette grower's given up his business because he can't get staff

    A Northland courgette grower's given up his business because he can't get staff


    Brett Heap claims he had approval to bring in 11 Recognised Seasonal Workers for last year's harvest.

    But the fuming farmer says he ended up with none.

    Heap says when the borders closed he knew he'd face some difficulty.

    He says he feels silly for believing the Prime Minister, when she said food producers were an essential industry which would be supported.
