LIVE updates on the UK petrol shortage as No10 plans to bring in foreign drivers

Many drivers are stocking up

Hoards of drivers have been making late-night and early morning trips to stock up for fear the country’s fuel supply could completely run out due to a lack of HGV delivery drivers.

One man visited the ASDA forecourt in Eastleigh, Hampshire, at 11pm last night only to be met by 20 other cars waiting to get in.

Another motorist was one of many waiting for his local garage in Hunstanton, Norfolk, to open at 6am.

Elsewhere, customers at a BP petrol station in Billericay, Essex, faced major delays this morning, and more than 30 vehicles lined up at the ASDA station at Brighton Marina, East Sussex.
