DRIVERS logged on to the Boston Standard’s website in their thousands to catch up on the latest news from the petrol pumps as the borough was gripped by a three-day panic.
We updated visitors to www.bostonstandard.co.uk with news of which stations had fuel left and featured video footage of the eerily empty forecourts and long queues experienced at several stations.
We also updated followers to our Facebook and Twitter pages with news from the forecourts, advice from police and the thoughts of MP Mark Simmonds.
On Wednesday we had almost 10,000 page views and on Thursday that figure topped 13,500.
