DW News published this video item, entitled “UK supply crisis: Is Boris Johnson losing control? | DW News” – below is their description.

Don’t Panic! That’s the message from the UK government as the country grapples with a fuel supply crisis. After a chaotic week that saw panic-buying and fights at the pumps British ministers say the crisis is abating. But UK petrol retailers paint a different picture. They say more than a quarter of pumps are dry and less than half have both petrol and diesel.

Huge queues have built up at the stations that have fuel with customers waiting hours to fill up. The backlog is clogging up roads and blocking traffic. Petrol retailers warn that until adquate supplies are sent to stations the long queues will continue.
