Petrol panic: Stations' services are getting back to normal
Most pumps are back in use

Most pumps in Windsor and Slough are now back in working order as forecourts get back to normal following the petrol panic last week.

And conciliation service Acas are holding talks today with seven companies, the Unite union and drivers to try and resolve the possible fuel drivers dispute.

Among those that closed for a period last week as motorists stocked up were Shell in Clarence Road, but manager Zaidi Syed, said: "It has settled down and we have fuel and it is normal now."

He said his firm's chiefs have said it is concentrating on standard fuels so no premium unleaded and diesel are available at his forecourt.

Unite is threatening a strike over tanker drivers' working conditions and pay, but has set no date yet and will have to give seven days notice before taking action.
