County council leader Lucy Nethsingha has asked those queuing for petrol to be “patient and kind”.
In a statement on the current fuel issue, she said: “We are keeping a close eye on the situation about fuel supplies reaching local petrol stations.
“And we totally understand that this may be causing anxiety.”
She said the county council has met with their partners this morning and been reassured about capacity in key areas of service.
“We will continue to keep in close contact with all partners so we know what the situation is across our area,” she said.
“We are told, and clearly hope, that the situation should improve in the coming days.
“Meanwhile we would ask that people try not to block roads while queuing for petrol and are patient and kind to all those trying to get the situation resolved.”
