According to FairFuelUK, the availability of petrol and diesel has improved considerably, although some pockets of the UK are still feeling the effects of the protests. London, Hampshire, East Anglia, Essex and Kent are the most affected along with the rest of the south and south east where up to three out of 10 pumps have no fuel.

Despite this, the north of the UK remains relatively unscathed.

Howard Cox, Founder of FairFuel Campaign, said the Government needed to do more if they wanted drivers to be protected from the impact of the protests.

He said: “We predict sporadic fuel supply in the Home Counties and the South, for the next few weeks, unless the police get tougher with the protesters.

“Injunctions and criminal charges must be served as a matter of urgency.

“That is one thing Labour is in tune with voters’ requests to stop these protests.

“The ‘Stop Oil’ protesters are simply wrecking drivers’ and small businesses’ daily lives and livelihoods, for a principle they cannot prove will make any difference to the environment. “

In its latest statement, Just Stop Oil said its actions would “impact fuel availability” at petrol pumps across England ahead of the Easter weekend.

Yesterday, protesters from the environmental action group disrupted oil supplies from three key oil terminals in Essex and Warwickshire.

The aim of the group is to demand that the Government ends new oil and gas projects in the UK and state that they will continue blocking oil terminals until the Government makes a change.

Mr Cox added: “They have become a brainwashed gullible cult full of emotion and little scientific fact.

“Every single driver wants clean air and lower emissions but many are often accused of being climate change deniers because they drive a petrol or diesel vehicle. 

“They do not need to be inconvenienced by those selfish, well-heeled seeking puerile attention for a laudable cause that should be presented professionally and honestly.
