It's been over a week since drivers began forming long queues outside Kent's petrol stations.

Last Friday (September 24), BP announced it had to close a "handful" of its petrol stations after running out of fuel, while while Esso owner ExxonMobil indicated a "small number" of its Tesco Alliance stations were also impacted.

There is currently a shortage of drivers qualified to drive fuel tankers, which is said to be the main issue.

There is also a shortage of qualified HGV drivers causing by many factors including Brexit and the COVID pandemic as well as systematic issues in the industry relating to the drivers' pay.

When travelling on the motorway, drivers are often reminded of the importance of keeping topped up for long journeys.

On Tuesday (September 28), traffic site INRIX reported that there were shortages of petrol at forecourts on the M25 and M20.

However, these warnings are no longer appearing on Kent's motorways.

Instead, the fuel crisis seems to be hitting more residential areas of the county.

Pictures have emerged today (October 1) which show Sainsbury's and Gulf in Broadstairs as well as Tesco in Ramsgate, all with 'no fuel' signs displayed out the front of the petrol station.

Cones have also been placed blocking drivers from entering the forecourts.

There has also been heavy congestion in Strood high street throughout the day due to traffic queueing for petrol.

Here is a full list of service stations on some of the main routes in Kent.

No fuel at Gulf, Broadstairs
