Mental. Look at the queues at Portishead's only fuel station as Britain fills up its tanks ahead of a possible fuel tanker strike. Other petrol stations across North Somerset have already ran out of fuel.

    Totally agree Nortech

    Petrol is very volatile stuff and should not be kept in 'jerry' cans

    It's just not worth taking the risk

    Waitrose petrol station had a delivery of fuel this morning, they have another scheduled for tomorrow morning and one a day for the next week, there is no drivers strike date even announced yet so why is everyone filling up in such a panic?

    Please if you have enough fuel to last a few days then don't fill up, just wait, there is more than enough to go round, and please, please please don'ty try to store any at home, it is really very dangerous.
