Meanwhile videos and images have been flooding in showing chaotic scenes on the roads as worried motorists queue for hours to get petrol.

Many stations including BP in Harrow Town Centre and Shell in Pinner have been forced to temporarily close.

In a statement published by the EG group, a spokesperson said: “Due to the current unprecedented customer demand for fuel and associated supply challenges we have taken the decision to introduce a limit of £30 per customer on all of our grades of fuel.

“This excludes HGV drivers and emergency services due to their vital role at this time. “This is a company decision to ensure all our customers have a fair chance to refuel and to enable our sites to carry on running smoothly.

“We kindly ask everyone visiting our sites to treat our colleagues, supply chain partners and customers with respect during these very challenging times.

“All of EG Group’s UK sites remain open and operational to serve customers.”
