British army to help deliver fuel starting Monday

The British government has deployed its military personnel to deliver fuel to gas stations from Monday due to ongoing supply issues.

“While the situation is stabilizing, our Armed Forces are there to fill in any critical vacancies and help keep the country on the move by supporting the industry to deliver fuel to forecourts," said Defence Minister Ben Wallace.

A shortage of heavy goods vehicle (HGV) drivers has led to a week of panic buying, resulting in some gas stations in the United Kingdom running dry.
