'Vegan militia' activist group Animal Rebellion has vowed to stage anti-milk protests to send prices soaring during cost of living crisis.
Britain's milk deliveries could be under siege from the group of vegan campaigners – an offshoot of Extinction Rebellion – who are threatening to disrupt supplies.
Up to 500 activists could take part in plans to block dairy depots over two weeks while demanding a switch to plant-based alternatives.

The protest group has vowed to carry out the protest in an effort to promote its vegan agenda, warning: "People are prepared to do whatever it non-violently takes — and that includes prison."
Yesterday, a director of one of the country's biggest milk suppliers warned there could be shortages if the campaign group stages its protest, The Sun reports.
Ash Amirahmadi of Arla Foods UK said: "Anything that adds to the cost of business will end up adding to costs for customers.
"We are working with police and government to make sure it keeps being supplied."
The average price of a pint of milk has jumped to 59p amid the cost of living crisis.
Last month, activists from Animal Rebelllion poured out milk over the floor of Harrods department store in Knightsbridge and were forcibly removed by security.
Vegans on social media later condemned the group's actions, saying they "made us look like fools" and it was "detrimental rather than helpful".
Twitter users were also quick to point out that the protestors – who also staged sit ins at other supermarkets and cleared shelves of milk and dairy products – were only making "a mess for the cleaners to clean up' and making it 'dangerous for disabled customers'.
One twitter user said: "You didn't hurt the dairy industry here, you gave them a large new order."
American actor Travis Wester was also involved in the online backlash, telling Animal Rebellion, "the next time you want to virtue signal with perfectly good food, I suggest you use it to feed the hungry".
In the video of the protest, which took place on July 27, the group are seen walking up to the milk section of the Food Hall in Harrods before pouring the milk out of the cartons onto the floor one-by-one.
Members of the group resist security removing them, with a number of people needed to physically remove the activists from the store.
A woman in the background can be heard saying "why are you doing this? It's disgusting".
Animal Rebellion also occupied 'The Cheese Room' at a Waitrose store and other dairy aisles in London and Bristol.
Beau King Houston, one of the protestors at Harrods, said: "We took this action in Harrods to show that we won't stand by as unsustainable, destructive industries wreak havoc on lives across the globe.
"Harrods is a symbol of the broken system we are living in.
"A system that ignores the needs and prosperity of everyone, in favour of politicians and their friends in business, but they could also be part of the transition to a better future."
