The Tesco on Southampton Road is now out of both petrol and diesel.

The kiosk is said to be still open, but the petrol station is now closed for fuel.

This comes as the Government and the Petrol Retailers Association (PRA) assured the public that the fuel crisis is easing.

The UK-wide crisis is reportedly caused by a shortage of HGV drivers.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said yesterday (Tuesday, September 28) that the situation is "stabilising", and urged people to go about their business normally.

He said: “We now are starting to see the situation improve; we’re hearing from (the) industry that supplies are coming back on to the forecourt in the normal way.

“I would just stress that on the forecourts the situation is stabilising and people should be confident and just go back to their business in the normal way.”

Queues for fuel at Shell, Wilton Road, on Friday (September 24)

Wiltshire Council has warned that there is not a shortage of fuel, and that people should fuel their vehicles as normal.

Cllr Dr Mark McClelland, Cabinet Member for Transport, said: "Wiltshire is not suffering from fuel shortages, so we need to make this very clear: there is no need for people to fill up more than usual or buy more than they need.

"People should fuel their vehicles as normal, and then we will be able to return to the usual situation of there being enough fuel for everyone when they need it."

Tesco has been contacted for comment.
