Joint statement from Nottinghamshire emergency services over fuel supply issues

Emergency services in Nottinghamshire would like to reassure people that services are unaffected by current fuel supply issues.


Superintendent Sukesh Verma, of Nottinghamshire Police, today issued a statement speaking on behalf of the 999 partner agencies.

He said: “People across Nottinghamshire can be reassured that emergency services plan carefully for scenarios such as this and have ample fuel supplies – meaning there will be no impact on services.

“As everyone is now aware there is no shortage of fuel, but a sudden change in the way people buy fuel in the last few days has made it difficult for forecourts to restock at a quick enough rate.

“By simply returning to normal habits, we understand fuel stations will be able to return to normal much more quickly and elevate the current challenge.

“We would also urge motorists to ensure they do not cause an obstruction on the roads if they are queueing for fuel.”
