Motorists flock to fill up on Tesco petrol as price sign fails

A Tesco petrol station in Weston-Super-Mare has been inundated with customers because its sign failed and the store was unable to raise its prices.

The price of a litre of petrol has been stuck at 111.9p – 7p below the national average – for two weeks and the people who run the garage have been unable to charge the proper price due to a grey area in the law.
