The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Queues form at petrol stations as drivers urged not to panic buy” – below is their description.

Queues have begun to form at petrol forecourts amid fuel shortages due to a lack of lorry drivers, as customers have been urged not to panic buy.

A handful of BP and Tesco petrol stations have been closed as a result of not being able to get petrol or diesel supplies.

The Petrol Retailers Association warned that drivers should keep a quarter of a tank of fuel in their car in case their usual station ran out.

The Prime Minister’s spokesman said on Thursday: “There is no shortage of fuel in the UK and people should continue to buy fuel as normal.

“We obviously recognise the challenges faced by the industry and are taking steps to support them.”
