VIDEO: Big queues as petrol panic continues

BIG queues have formed along London Road in Boston as motorists continue to rush to fill up their tanks.

The Total station says it does still have stocks of fuel, but is experiencing big demand with long queues.

The Government has advised motorists to keep their tanks half-full as talks are ongoing with unions over the pay and conditions for tanker drivers.

The unions would have to give seven days notice of any action but the fear of a strike has prompted a rush to the pumps, with Boston particularly hit throughout yesterday when both Asda and Tesco ran out of fuel.

Both of the supermarket stations have now re-opened but the Esso in John Adams Way is currently shut having run out of petrol and diesel.
