‘I’ve got an actual appointment to get to for my medication, so can we just think about others before ourselves.’
Petrol stations could face disruption for up to a month even if panic buying stops, industry figures have warned as the Army is set to start driving fuel tankers to petrol stations this week – despite’s claim petrol panic buying is ‘stabilising’.
Industry sources have told The Times that disruption could carry on for weeks, even if panic buying dies down, due to the time it would take to restock petrol stations. One source said they expected BP to keep tackling issues throughout next month.

Upsetting: Elsewhere, Tom was upset after he received a backlash online for putting up a video of his baby daughter Aurelia Rose online without any pants on
Elsewhere, Tom was upset after he received a backlash online for putting up a video of his baby daughter Aurelia Rose online without any pants on.
The singer had innocently put up the video of his twenty six month old daughter playing in their family home and never expected the response he got from it.
He said to Aurelia who was only half dressed as she played a toy piano in the video: ‘Are you enjoying that Elton? Entertaining the masses. I was entertained.’
Following his post on Instagram, Tom received messages from fans asking him to take it down.
He said: ‘I can’t believe how many people said “I can’t believe you posted a video of Aurelia with no pants”. Like she’s a baby. What is wrong with people? So kids can’t walk around without any pants on these days? It’s ridiculous. The worlds gone mad.’
He added: ‘Do you know what I’m so disappointed with the responses of Aurelia not wearing any pants.
‘I just can’t believe we have got to a stage in the world you can’t post a picture or a video of your daughter running around without any pants on without people going “you can’t put that these days.” Cause of sickos in the world. There is yeah. It’s just sad though, isn’t it?’

What is Glioblastoma?
Glioblastoma is an aggressive type of cancer that can occur in the brain or spinal cord.
It forms from cells called astrocytes that support nerve cells.
Glioblastoma can occur at any age, but tends to occur more often in older adults.
It can cause worsening headaches, nausea, vomiting and seizures.
Glioblastoma, also known as glioblastoma multiforme, can be very difficult to treat and a cure is often not possible.
Treatments may slow progression of the cancer and reduce signs and symptoms.
