Moped rider launches flying kick against another rider as anger boils over at packed petrol station

A fight that broke out between moped drivers at a petrol station in north London was captured and shared online as motorists queue to fill up. 

The footage, shared on twitter, showed one driver running and jump-kicking another at a BP garage in Haverstock Hill, near Camden as motorists pack out petrol stations across the country. 

The two men were already seemingly being separated before the physical fight began, with one trying to use his crash helmet to attack the other. 

It comes after a four-man fight broke out at an Esso garage in Chichester, West Sussex yesterday.

Thought to be between two sets of father and sons, the four men kicked and punched each other to the ground, and the two older men broke out into a scuffle on the bonnet of the car. 

The younger men fought on the floor.  

Queueing motorists have caused havoc on the roads. Earlier today, an ambulance crashed into traffic queueing for petrol at a Shell station in Bromley, Greater London. 

Elsewhere, police have had to jump queues to secure fuel. 

Photographs yesterday online showing drivers stocking up on fuel. Just one per cent of Britain's petrol stations are empty, according to fuel bosses.

Some had multiple jerry cans in the boot of their cars and spent time filling each up while others queued for hours to reach the pump. 

Meanwhile, around 400 stations owned by the EG Group are limiting customers to £30 worth of petrol to give everyone a 'fair chance to refuel'. 

More petrol stations have been forced to close amid panic buying and the knock-on impact of the HGV crisis crippling the UK's transport industry.

Government officials have now given the green light for plans to bring in 5,000 foreign lorry drivers to deal with the shortage - with the UK said to be 100,000 HGV drivers short, according to the Road Haulage Association.

Transport Secretary Grant Shapps today took aim at the group, accusing them of sparking the panic buying crisis. 

He said 'there is plenty of fuel' to go around as he urged motorists to be 'sensible' and to 'fill up when you normally would'.

It comes as police have also jumped ahead of queues of traffic at a Hackney petrol station to avoid running out of fuel

He said the rush to forecourts which has seen lengthy queues at stations across the country 'will come to an end' because soon 'everyone's cars will be more or less filled up'.

But he said that it would take a 'considerable amount of time' to fix the issue, which he said had been going on for five years and was also a problem in EU countries such as Poland.
