HERE is the latest fuel update from the town’s supermarket petrol stations as of 1pm on Friday.

Asda on Ovangle Road had run out of fuel but were expecting a delivery imminently.

Morrisons was running as normal but there were large queues.

Sainsbury’s station in Morecambe had just run out and closed until further notice.

Meanwhile an Easter strike by fuel tanker drivers has been ruled out by the Unite union.

It is to join conciliation talks and says there may still be a strike after Easter if those fail.

Government advice to drivers to top up tanks has been blamed by retailers for causing “panic buying”.
