Popular grocery items have dropped in price by as much as 40% compared with a year ago according to mySupermarket.co.uk.

This is the lowest price recorded since the mySupermarket Groceries Tracker was launched in December 2014. In April last year the same basket cost £86.69.

Broccoli was 39% cheaper in April 2016 compared with April 2015, along with onions (18% drop), bananas (15% cheaper) and fresh peppers (16% drop).

The only product to rise higher than a few percentage points compared with March was baked beans (up 4%).
