SOME petrol stations remain closed in Worcester due to the ongoing fuel shortage.
Several garages in the city remain closed or had reduced pumps open despite beliefs that the situation was improving.
Earlier this week Prime Minister Boris Johnson said the fuel crisis was “easing”.
Meanwhile the Government have now released a map showing the worst affected areas in the country, using a traffic light system.
The West Midlands, and large parts of England, are in the ‘red’ category.
The army are expected to begin delivering petrol from tomorrow, Monday, October 4.
