Drivers have rushed to the forecourts after BP announced it had been forced to close number of sites due to supply problems.

The Government has urged motorists not to panic-buy and Sussex Police has issued a warning against queueing outside the garages and blocking up the city’s roads.

A Sussex Police Tweet read: “We are aware of drivers queuing at petrol stations across Sussex.

“Keeping highways clear is essential for emergency services to respond to incidents and hindering them poses a serious public health risk.

“Please follow the latest government guidance around the buying of fuel.”
