Daily Mail published this video item, entitled “Cars queue for petrol across the UK amid fears of fuel shortage” – below is their description.

Boris Johnson is under pressure to deploy soldiers to drive petrol trucks as a major shortage of HGV drivers threatens to wreak havoc this winter. MPs have said the Army could be used as a short term fix amid increasingly dire warnings over the damage the driver shortage could do in the coming weeks unless urgent action is taken. Retailers today warned ministers they have just 10 days to save Christmas from ‘significant disruption’ due to the lack of drivers. The British Retail Consortium said that disruption over the festive period will be ‘inevitable’ unless the shortfall of an estimated 90,000 drivers is addressed.
