good morning. the army is on standby this morning to help ease the fuel crisis, after days of long queues at some petrol pumps, which have run dry because of panic buying. up to 150 military tanker drivers will prepare to deliver to forecourts following a surge in demand. transport secretary grant shapps said, "we are starting to see panic buying moderate with more grades of fuel available at more petrol stations," as the government continues to stress the uk has strong supplies of fuel. the doctors�* union, the british medical association, has called for health care staff to be given priority at petrol stations, warning essential services could be hit if they can't get to work. the uk is estimated to be short of more than 100,000 lorry drivers, causing problems for a range of industries, including food

but the soaring price of crude oil. the uk has plenty of fuel, but well panic buying continue at a faster rate than deliveries going on? the knock—on effects for businesses will grow the longer this goes on. brian maddison as chairman of the petrol retailers association. what is the situation this morning with the queues? i is the situation this morning with the queues?— is the situation this morning with the cueues? . ., ., ., the queues? i am afraid to say there is still quite — the queues? i am afraid to say there is still quite a _ the queues? i am afraid to say there is still quite a bit _ the queues? i am afraid to say there is still quite a bit of _ the queues? i am afraid to say there is still quite a bit of panic— the queues? i am afraid to say there is still quite a bit of panic buying - is still quite a bit of panic buying in the country, one of our members in the country, one of our members in the country, one of our members in the north with a portfolio of sites across the counties reports that 50% of his sites are still dry, 25% have one greater only and only 25% have one greater only and only 25% have one greater only and only 25% have both grades. —— 25% have one rate only. there is still a supply shortage with tankers being delivered overnight. we implore
9:06 am
customers to keep to normal purchasing. the average purchase is between £25 and £30 per visit, anybody exceeding that on a regular basis must be deemed to be cut clearly there are customers who have a need to fill a tank for business reasons but we ask people to calm down and let the system gets back to normal. ~ f down and let the system gets back to normal. ~ j i. down and let the system gets back to normal. ~ j , ., ~' down and let the system gets back to normal. ~ j ,, ~ , .,, down and let the system gets back to normal. ~ j ~ , ., normal. why'd you think people are not coming — normal. why'd you think people are not coming down? _ normal. why'd you think people are not coming down? -- _ normal. why'd you think people are not coming down? -- why - normal. why'd you think people are not coming down? -- why do - normal. why'd you think people are not coming down? -- why do you i normal. why'd you think people are i not coming down? -- why do you think not coming down? —— why do you think people are not calming down. you not coming down? -- why do you think people are not calming down.- people are not calming down. you are robabl people are not calming down. you are probably too — people are not calming down. you are probably too young — people are not calming down. you are probably too young to _ people are not calming down. you are probably too young to remember- people are not calming down. you are| probably too young to remember what happened in 2000 but then they filmed vehicles following tankers out of the terminals to see which forecourt they are going to deliver to. today we do not have to do that, we have social media, there is a flock of people, as they have had a
9:07 am
delivery, coming to the forecourt, egged on by social media. go to such an such a filling station, we have just seen a tanker arrived. so that perpetuates the panic buying, i know where there is fuel, i will get some, i might need some. we need a little bit of calm, please, to allow the system to replenish the forecourt. 0ne the system to replenish the forecourt. one of the real reasons as there are so many vehicles on the roads today, 36 and alien, and if they all fill their tanks to a nominal capacity, that is over 2 billion litres of fuel on the road and in the garage —— so many vehicles on the roads today, 36 million. forecourt captures 20% at best. —— forecourt have got. what million. forecourt captures 2096 at best. -- forecourt have got. what do ou think best. -- forecourt have got. what do

and notjust by those who are struggling to fill up. 0r drive by. your whole family works in the nhs. and you are all running on empty, is that right? yes, that is the worry. they said do not buy the fuel, do not panic. do not fill up your tanks. so we did not. but then when the time came to fill up, there is nothing available, not at all. there is not a single petrol station open. | i am running on fumes. we do not have enough to go to the station. our son was on call, he hasjust finished, he hasjust enough. petrol to come back. what is going to happen tomorrow? we do not know. we really do not. the worry is how we can _ support our patients when we have this crisis. these concerns are felt across the nhs, with many calling for short supply to be prioritised. it is a team of people that need to
9:41 am
be in the right place at the right time, delivering care to patients. colin has enough fuel for today but not tomorrow. it is uncharted territory, we have already been through the covid pandemic and how that impacts on staff. and that is still happening. people having to self isolate. but this is another roadblock to be able to deliver care to patients. if i do not have fuel i cannot take special needs pupils to _ school. it is the same for steve. every fuel station i go past- is either closed because they have no fuel or they have massive queues. it is vitally important with autistic- children that they are kept - in a routine, they expect the same thing to happen every day. in fact they expect to sit in the same seat on i the bus every day, if they do not, they get upset, it is vitally- important i get to their homes at the right time. _

do not forget one important thing, many of these patients have been waiting a long time because waiting lists are so long. for us not getting to work on time, for example, you are letting down your patients. i am sure they can sort it out. we sorted out the vaccination programme pretty well after the testing was not so great. we can always fix things. hopefully, fast for you? yes! it would be nice. if we could get it within the next 12 hours or so. that was jayne mccubbin reporting. 0n the issue whether essential workers should be prioritised, jean says what about self—employed workers? liz says she is disabled and can�*t walk and is lost without her car. why should key workers get
9:44 am
priority and not disabled as well? let�*s talk now to a former senior civil servants who worked in the cabinet office. thank you for talking to us. your response to the call for essential workers to be prioritised? it call for essential workers to be prioritised?— call for essential workers to be rioritised? , ., prioritised? it is not as easy as it sounds. ministers _ prioritised? it is not as easy as it sounds. ministers ended - prioritised? it is not as easy as it sounds. ministers ended up i prioritised? it is not as easy as it i sounds. ministers ended up putting a third of the economy into the priority system and even then we didn�*t get it right. the nhs was short—staffed. teachers didn�*t get priorities. every working parent to has child care has to work at home. these things are not simple to organise. the best way to deal with this is to deal with public behaviour. it is not panic but a lot
9:45 am
of this is perfectly rational behaviour. wejust of this is perfectly rational behaviour. we just need to get everyone to understand to back off a bit and it will take time. the seminal moment in 2,000 was when the fuel industry representative said, "you do realise that if we go back to normal deliveries tomorrow and normal behaviour it will take three weeks to get the system back into proper kilt." that because you are dealing with thousands of petrol stations, eight and the car thousand in the uk and thousands of tanker deliveries every day and they only fill up to about three or four day supply for each station at normal rates. so this is not simple but it needs leadership. the solution in 2,000 was essentially the prime minister getting up on his hind legs, seen together with the industry and saying, "you have to understand this will take time out will only work if everybody backs off a bit." and that is what did it. that is interesting because we haven�*t heard from the prime minister on this crisis yet in detail. we have heard from the
9:46 am
environment secretary and the transport secretary and they have all said, "look, we are not running out of fuel. there is no fuel shortage so please don�*t panic buy." why don�*t you think the public are modifying their behaviour as yet? i would replay your set—up. it's would replay your set—up. it�*s because they can�*t find fuel. there may be no fuel at the pumps and that will be the same at the refinery centres. that was the same in the year 2,000. centres. that was the same in the year2,000. people centres. that was the same in the year 2,000. people need to fill up and they�*re not getting any coherent authoritative advice from where you are expected to come from, the heart of government. 50 are expected to come from, the heart of government-— of government. so if the prime minister did _ of government. so if the prime minister did a _ of government. so if the prime minister did a covid _ of government. so if the prime minister did a covid style i of government. so if the prime minister did a covid style press conference alongside figures from the industry you think that would stop people? i the industry you think that would stop people?— the industry you think that would stop people? i think it would start to hel to stop people? i think it would start to help to stop — stop people? i think it would start to help to stop people. _ stop people? i think it would start to help to stop people. you i stop people? i think it would start to help to stop people. you have. stop people? i think it would start. to help to stop people. you have to live with people about how difficult it is going to be. i come back to my point, this is a complex just—in—time delivery system that
9:47 am
takes time to get back into balance. you had to explain to people that evenif you had to explain to people that even if they start behaving normally and they should do that to help each other, it will take time to get it all right and ask for their patients. waving your finger people and sending out tweets in capital letters saying, "don�*t panic buy!" doesn�*t cut it. we have had more in 18 months of people who have responded to calls from government and essential services, asking them to take into account what is happening and behave as responsibly as possible. in a community minded fashion and they did it. so why wouldn�*t it work now? fashion and they did it. so why wouldn't it work now?- fashion and they did it. so why wouldn't it work now? thank you very much for talking _ wouldn't it work now? thank you very much for talking to _ wouldn't it work now? thank you very much for talking to us. _ let�*s talk to emma voglemann who requires 24 hour care, and depends on her carers to be able to make journeys of up to 50 minutes by car to attend to her. did your carers managed to get to you last night?— you last night? they did, after t in: a you last night? they did, after trying a lot— you last night? they did, after trying a lot of— you last night? they did, after trying a lot of petrol _ you last night? they did, after trying a lot of petrol stations l you last night? they did, after. trying a lot of petrol stations she finally _

through this evening and overnight the rain eventually does push off into the north sea relieving some clearer skies behind but still a few showers. still blustery across england and wales and picking up once again across wales and northern ireland. in rural parts of the north temperatures could dip as low as three or 4. temperatures could dip as low as three or 4 . tomorrow the rain is close enough and chaplain to effectuate some stage in the day but with the transient ridge of high pressure building across us it does mean things will turn more settled with fewer showers in the afternoon. it will feel rather cool. i will have more in half an hour.
