One of the largest oil refineries in the UK has reportedly stopped fuel supplies after its Swiss owner admitted it was on the brink of collapse.


Coryton refinery in Essex - a key source of petrol in London and the South East - suspended sales on Tuesday and told around 1,000 staff it was unsure when supplies would start again, the Financial Times said.
