A number of fuel stations across Scotland have introduced a £30 limit on fuel per vehicle in light of "unprecedented customer demand".

The amount of petrol and diesel customers can purchase will be limited by Forecourts, which is owned by the EG Group, following panic-buying on Friday.

More than a dozen garages in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Dundee will be affected by the cap, but the company insisted HGV drivers and emergency service vehicles will be exempt from the limit.

“Due to the current unprecedented customer demand for fuel and associated supply challenges we have taken the decision to introduce a limit of £30 per customer on all of our grades of fuel," a spokesman told The Herald.

"This excludes HGV drivers and emergency services due to their vital role at this time.

“This is a company decision to ensure all our customers have a fair chance to refuel and to enable our sites to carry on running smoothly. We kindly ask everyone visiting our sites to treat our colleagues, supply chain partners and customers with respect during these very challenging times.

"All of EG Group’s UK sites remain open and operational to serve customers.”
