Panic at the pumps

The union representing petrol tanker drivers has promised that there will be no strikes over Easter.

Despite the announcement, there's been little reduction in the numbers of motorists queuing at stations across Wales.

The massive increase in demand has led to another day of intermittent supplies.

ITV Wales has been to one forecourt which ran out of fuel first thing this morning.

The reason why they have run out is simply due to the fact that they have been unable to keep up with the demand, as people are panic buying over fears tanker drivers are to strike.

Normally this particular garage, in Cyncoed in Cardiff, sells 2000 litres of unleaded petrol everyday.

Yesterday they sold 15,000 and this garage isn't unique there is a similar story across the rest of the country.
