Petrol station latest in Great Yarmouth

GREAT Yarmouth motorists were rushing to fill up with fuel this morning, despite threatened strike action by drivers being at least a week away.

The dispute is over terms and conditions and safety standards.

But as of 1.50pm, Hemsby service station has run out of fuel, with no news on the next delivery.

And at the town’s supermarkets, queues of motorists stretched back from the petrol station forecourt into the car park. Both Asda and Tesco Extra had diesel and petrol stocks at around 10am today, though Tesco had run out of the Momentum line of petrol.

At Tesco motorists were filling jerry cans with fuel, and staff directed motorists to pumps where fuel was available.

But the Jet petrol station in Southtown Road was out of stock at around 10am today, with a sign on the pumps telling motorists: “Sorry no fuel”.
