Strikes in France have led to massive fuel shortages. Breakdown service Green Flag is advising drivers to fill up in the UK before crossing the Channel.
It’s expected that 15 million of us will be hitting the roads at some point over the next three days; possibly making it the busiest our roads have been in the last three years.
And if your plan is to escape the British motorways by crossing the Channel, be sure you’re up to date with yet another problem that could bring your journey to a standstill; French fuel shortages.
Due to the ongoing industrial action in France, more than 40% of French fuel stations are currently being affected by fuel shortages, with motorists limited to around 20-litres.
As a result, Green Flag is expecting fuel-related breakdowns to be even higher than the average Bank Holiday weekend and is urging drivers to fill up in the UK before setting off.
