Conwy County Council is reminding drivers there is no fuel shortage and no need to panic buy.

Representatives of all the emergency services, local authorities, health providers and other key agencies across the region have met to review the impact of the panic buying on vital service provision to local communities.

A spokeswoman for Conwy County Council commented: “Concerns about a shortage of fuel have led to an increase in the number of motorists visiting filling stations. In some places this has caused queues and road congestion, which as well as causing delays to other road users could also potentially impact on critical and emergency services.

“All key services have plans in place to deal with fuel shortages and currently the situation is not impacting how agencies across North Wales are providing services to local communities. We are however asking people to be sensible and not panic buy.”

The advice follows police reporting care workers receiving verbal abuse on forecourts.
