bicester runs out of Petrol
David Cameron sought to reassure motorists that petrol supplies will not run out after a serious fire involving a woman decanting petrol in her kitchen cast doubt on the government’s decision to encourage stockpiling.
Diane Hill, 46, was in a critical but stable condition in hospital with 40% burns after pouring petrol from a jerry can into a jug in her kitchen in York because her daughter needed fuel for her car.
The accident happened on Thursday night, a day after Francis Maude, the Cabinet Office minister, said the proposed tanker drivers’ strike meant that “a bit of extra fuel in a jerry can in the garage is a sensible precaution to take”. Some Labour figures blamed Maude personally for the accident and called for his resignation.
