A fuel testing team was called to investigate the cause of the issue.

Manager Balla Nimal said: "The result came back as water contamination, so at the moment the forecourt is open but we are not using the contaminated tanks.

"They will be cleaned prior to use.

"We believe it came from the delivery tanks, because our tank had zero level of water but it went up just after the delivery, but Murco is still investigating."

There were two tanks - four pumps - affected, which are currently not in use.

Murco has been contacted for comment.
