Some Shell petrol stations are reporting that they have run out of fuel.
Shell said it was seeing increased demand for fuel at some of its petrol stations as worries over lorry driver shortages sent motorists to the pumps en masse to fill up their tanks.
A spokesperson for the Anglo-Dutch oil group said: “We are seeing an increased demand today for fuel at some of our stations, which may in some instances result in larger queues.
“We are adapting our delivery schedules to ensure sufficient supplies for our customers.”
