Do you think stories of people eating pet food are true?

There are stories in the British press, including the BBC of people eating pet food because they can't afford to feed themselves. It is also claimed that they are warming up meals on radiators.

Now I'm a bit sceptical here, you can buy a tin of soup for less than dog food, in fact it's not hard to find human food cheaper. It's not like we're a third world country (yet).

So, do you think these stories have any merit or are they bollocks?
