Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “What’s behind the UK’s truck driver shortage? | Inside Story” – below is their description.
It’s not something you see every day in the UK: drivers waiting in long queues to fill their cars at the petrol station.
The government says panic buying is partly to blame for the pumps running dry.
Fuel companies blame a severe lack of tanker drivers to deliver the fuel.
The driver shortage has also left supermarket shelves empty.
Is Brexit to blame? And has the crisis exposed deeper trucking industry problems?
