Snow Paralyzes UK – More Coming Tonight

2nd December 2010
Hundreds of petrol stations were running out of fuel today as the heavy snow wreaked havoc on the nation’s roads and the temperature in London was set to hit – 7c overnight.
Some forecourts are already dry and others could run out of petrol, and especially diesel by the weekend, warned the Independent Petrol Retailers Association.
Representing around two thirds of Britain’s 9,000 forecourts, the association said its members across the east of the UK from Scotland down to Kent were seeing shortages at the pumps.
