The fuel crisis in Britain forces the government to use the armed forces to help cope with the situation. As of Monday, Armed Forces personnel in the UK will start transporting fuel to petrol stations.
A statement from the British government said about 200 soldiers, 100 of whom will be drivers, will provide temporary support to ease the pressure on petrol stations.
The soldiers from a week have learned how to fill the tanks and gas stations and on Monday morning will make the first deliveries.
Also around 300 foreign fuel tanker drivers will start duty in the near future to work in Britain by the end of March.
A study conducted in Britain reveals that at least 26 per cent of petrol stations have neither petrol nor diesel.
The crisis in the country started a week ago, after BP and Tesco Alliance stated that the supply was interrupted due to lack of drivers for heavy vehicles nationwide.
After the declaration, long queues formed in front of the gas stations while at some points, the fuel ran out.
