Brawl breaks out between moped drivers at London petrol station as tensions flare at the pumps during fuel chaos

ANOTHER fight broke out between moped drivers at a petrol station as motorists struggled to fill up.

One man ran and jump-kicked another driver at the forecourt before onlookers started shouting.

Two men were already seemingly being separated before today's fight, thought to be at a BP garage near Camden, North London, broke out on video.

One of them tried to use his crash helmet to hit another.

It came after another four-man brawl yesterday, thought to be between two sets of father and sons.

They kicked and punched each other to the ground in front of other drivers at an Esso garage in Chichester, West Sussex.

The two older men broke out into a scuffle on the bonnet of a car while the other pair fought on the floor.

Meanwhile, two groups of men screamed at each other before one group hurled stones at the others, who fled the Shell garage in Portsmouth in their van.

Earlier today an ambulance rushing in an emergency crashed into traffic queueing for petrol at a  Shell station in Bromley, Greater London.

And cops have had to jump queues in order to secure fuel in Hackney, East London.

The president of the AA Edmund Kingyesterday insisted there is plenty of fuel at the source and said there was no need to panic buy.

Disruption to fuel supplies has been blamed on a lack of HGV drivers, not a shortage of fuel itself.

Transport Secretary Grant Shapps blamed a haulage company for the company, accusing it of leaking details of a private meeting.

He has approved temporary visas for  5,000 overseas HGV drivers to help ease the crisis.

Less than 100 of the  8,350 fuel stations in the UK were shut — about one per cent.

But drivers are set to be hit with a £30 limit on fuel after panic buyers queued at petrol stations across the country amid shortage fears.
