    Army tanker drivers will be put on a state of readiness in preparation for deployment to ease the chaos on fuel supply chains, the Government has announced in the face of mounting pressure.
  • Petrol stations across Herefordshire and beyond ran dry over the weekend and into Monday, as soaring demand saw tankers struggle to keep up with the queues.
  • The government and fuel suppliers have both sought to assure drivers that there is no fuel shortage and no need to panic buy.
  • We'll be keeping you up-to-date with the situation in the county here.
