Everything seems to be back to normal on Monday 4 October at 7 am.

Sainsbury’s Melton Road – fuel available – no queues at all

ASDA Loughborough Road – no fuel

Morrisons Gamston – fuel available – no queues at all

Almost 200 Military tanker personnel, 100 of which are drivers, will be deployed from Monday 4 October.

The drivers will provide temporary support as part of the government’s wider action to further relieve pressure on petrol stations and address the shortage of HGV drivers.

Demand for fuel has stabilised throughout the week and more fuel is now being delivered than is being sold, however some parts of the country still face challenges.

To help fuel stocks further improve, military personnel are currently undertaking their training at haulier sites across the country and from Monday will be on the road delivering fuel supplies across the country.

This comes alongside a range of measures the Government is taking to ease temporary supply chain pressures in food haulage industries, brought on by the pandemic and the global economy rebounding around the world.

In a further step to manage these pressures in the short term, the Government is introducing a bespoke scheme allowing up to 300 fuel tanker drivers to the UK on a temporary basis.
