A strike in the paper industry in Finland has left the country desperately short of toilet paper.

Shops have been selling out of loo roll up and down the country and people stock up.

One store manager in Helsinki said: “We have been sold out for days, and on the rare occasions when stores get a fresh delivery it is sold as fast as it can be put on the shelves.”

The four week strike has meant that holidaymaking Finns have been returning home with suitcases full of toilet paper rather than souvenirs.
