UK petrol shortage LIVE: No 10 could allow 10,000 workers in to fix HGV driver crisis

THE GOVERNMENT is reportedly poised to grant 10,000 temporary foreign worker visas to help ease the HGV driver shortage and fuel crisis.

BP and Tesco are among those who have been forced to close petrol stations because of a shortage of lorry drivers are preventing supplies getting to forecourts, rather than a shortage of fuel itself.

No 10 insisted on Friday night that any measures introduced would be “very strictly time-limited” amid reports that Boris Johnson had allowed ministers to relax UK immigration rules to allow more foreign drivers into the country.

And although Downing Street would not confirm whether any decisions had been made, Transport Secretary Grant Shapps earlier promised to “move heaven and earth” to get the situation solved.
