Speaking to Sky News, the woman said: "I'm only queueing because everybody else is queueing, to be honest.
"I need a bit of petrol. If it all runs out, I'm stuck; how am I going to get to work?"

Another man said that although he had sufficient fuel for the time being, he had also joined the conquest for petrol in case he ran out over the coming days.

"I don't know what the situation is going to be in the coming days so I'd rather get some now than leave it any longer."
Despite the mass hysteria driving people to petrol stations, transport secretary Grant Shapps told Sky News on Sunday (September 26): "There's plenty of fuel, there's no shortage of the fuel within the country.
"So the most important thing is actually that people carry on as they normally would and fill up their cars when they normally would, then you won't have queues and you won't have shortages at the pump either."
