What happened at petrol stations in Sheffield last week?

Despite being warned that panic buying would only worsen the fuel shortage situation, petrol stations across Sheffield have seen surge of motorists filling up their tanks over the last week.

As a result, petrol stations in Sheffield have been experiencing supply problems, with availability of fuel varying at different locations around the city.

However, the current situation does seem to be improving slightly, with a number of the petrol stations which last week said they had run out of fuel now fully stocked.

The UK is estimated to be short 100,000 HGV drivers, with shortages exacerbated by the pandemic and Brexit.

Transport Secretary Grant Shapps discouraged drivers from panic buying petrol, advising them to “carry on as usual”.

Police have issued a plea for people to stop panic buying petrol, fearing otherwise police officers will not be able to get to work.
