Fuel crisis: Army ‘ready to respond’ to supply shortages, says defence secretary

Sky News says the army is on standby with soldiers at “increased preparedness” to help deliver fuel if necessary, the defence secretary has said.

It comes after long queues continued in many places on Monday after some motorists apparently ignored pleas to stop panic-buying.

Army tanker drivers will now receive specialised training ahead of any possible deployment.

“The men and women of our armed forces stand ready to alleviate the transport pressures where they are felt most,” said Defence Secretary Ben Wallace.
