Tankers protest fuels petrol fears
HUNDREDS of Shell tanker drivers have begun a four-day strike today at the Stanlow Oil Refinery in Ellesmere Port in a row over pay.
The strike will affect one in 10 of Britain's 9,500 filling stations, but the Government and the transport industries have urged motorists not to panic-buy petrol.
Prime Minister Gordon Brown has not ruled out calling in the Army to keep fuel flowing, saying the Government was willing to do "everything we can" to stop pumps running dry.
The men's union Unite says drivers from other companies, including BP, have refused to cross picket lines.
