Greggs customers in Kendal have responded to Roger Whiteside, chief executive of Greggs, saying that products may rise by 5-10p. 

Roger Whiteside, who steps down from his position today, said that the business is in the process of working out how to adjust product prices in line with inflation.

This comes in the middle of a cost of living crisis that has seen many UK consumers avoiding eating out. 

However, Kendal residents were unphased by the news. 

A man eating a steak bake on his lunch break said: "It won't bother me 5p! It's only 5p innit?" 

Another man, sipping from a Greggs cup, said: "I like their cappucinos, and it's definitely cheaper than Costa." His friend also drinking a Greggs coffee said: "It's better than other places because you get a free one don't you? After your tenth cup." 

However one woman eating a bake did express concern: "It's very rare that I go in there, but it is a shame. I seems like everything is going up." 

Yet a worker sipping a frothy beverage agreed about the quality of coffees from Greggs, and said: "Of course I'd continue to go in there if it rose slightly." 

According to the latest figures from the Office for National Statistics, inflation rose by 6.2% up to March 2022. The Bank of England warned that inflation could hit 10% over the summer. The Office for National Statistics will update their figures tomorrow.
