Explained: What is causing the long queues at petrol stations?

4 2 53

Concerns over diesel and petrol supplies have resulted in some filling stations across the country having to temporarily close - but why are we panicking?

While BP, Shell and Esso have confirmed a small number of their forecourts across the UK have been temporarily shut this week due to a lack of fuel, the vast majority of the firms' stations across East Anglia remain open at this time.

There is actually no shortage of petrol or diesel in the UK - however there are concerns about deliveries which is linked to a lack of lorry drivers.
