FUEL station owners have sold more than triple the fuel they expected to as motorists rush to fill up.

Queues are stretching far beyond the forecourt as drivers look to avoid running out of fuel if a tankers’ strike goes ahead.

Deliveries have reached some stations to re-stock the pumps, but others have had to close off their forecourts as the demand reaches crisis point.

The stations closed at the moment are:

Cunliffes New Road Garage, Blackpool

Shell Blackpool North, Talbot Road, Blackpool

The garages running low on all types of fuel are:

Shell Westview, Hatfield Avenue, Fleetwood

Shell Kilnhouse Lane, St Annes
