Long queues at some UK petrol stations as drivers defy appeals not to panic buy
Queues of drivers were spotted at a petrol station in Romford, Essex on Friday morning (September 24).
Video from an Esso petrol station on Faringdon Avenue, Harold Hill shows scores of cars slowing entering the forecourt.
“People are panic-buying petrol! This is Romford, Harold Hill,” says the filmer in the clip.
Esso is among the companies who have reportedly closed a small number of their petrol stations due to a shortage of lorry drivers to deliver the fuel.
Drivers are being urged not to panic buy.
