Two men already being separated from today’s fight, believed to be in a BP garage near Camden, north London, broke out on video.


One of them tried to use his crash helmet to hit the other.

This came after another four-man brawl yesterday, believed to be between two sets of fathers and sons.

They kicked and punched each other in front of other drivers at an Esso garage in Chichester, West Sussex.

A scuffle broke out between two old men on the bonnet of one car, while the other couple clashed on the floor.

Meanwhile, two groups of men shouted at each other, before one group pelted stones at the others, who had fled from the Shell garage in Portsmouth in their van.

Earlier today an ambulance in an emergency crashed into a traffic line for petrol at a Shell station in Bromley, Greater London.

And in Hackney, east London, police have to queue to secure fuel.

The president of AA Edmund King insisted yesterday that there is a lot of fuel at the source and said there was no need to panic.

The disruption in fuel supply has been attributed to the shortage of HGV drivers and not the fuel shortage.

Transportation Secretary Grant Shapps blamed a haulage company for the company, accusing it of leaking details of a private meeting.

They have approved temporary visas for 5,000 foreign HGV drivers to help mitigate the crisis.

Of the 8,350 fuel stations in the UK, less than 100 were closed – about one per cent.

But drivers are set to be hit with a £30 limit on fuel after buyers queued up at petrol stations across the country amid fears of shortages.
