UK fuel crisis updates: councils cut services and fire chiefs issue warning

As troops begin training to help deliver fuel to service stations, the crisis at petrol pumps continues to be felt across parts of the UK.

Some of the latest developments in the fuel crisis:

  • A pub in Cheshire is offering discount meals to customers who can prove they have not been panic buying fuel. The Riverside Inn in Northwich is offering meal deals to customers who can show they have less than half a tank of fuel in their vehicles. “Prove to us you’re not part of the problem and we’ll give you 20% off your food bill,” the pub’s Facebook page promised.

  • Fire chiefs have warned residents in Berkshire about the danger of storing petrol at homes or in cars. Royal Berkshire fire and rescue pointed out that “petrol and other fuels give off vapours that are highly flammable”. It also reminded the public that it is illegal to store more than 30 litres of petrol at home without permission. “Any storage place should be well away from living areas and be secured to protect against the possibility of vandalism or arson,” it said.
