WATCH: Fight breaks out at UK petrol station as pumps run dry

Another fight has broken out at a petrol station in the UK as pumps continue to run dry.

A video is circulating on social media of a group of moped drivers that get involved in an altercation, during which, one man ran and jump-kicked a driver at the garage, triggering a response amongst onlookers, some of which were shouting that they were calling the police.

During the altercation, which occurred at a BP garage near Camden, one of the drivers uses his helmet to strike another driver.

The fight was eventually broken up but it is one of the many altercations that have broken out at petrol stations across the UK.

The incidents are resulting from panic buying, brought on by plundering petrol supplies in the UK, with industry figures revealing that 85% of stations have run dry of petrol.

In an attempt to tackle the issue, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson is considering that the army help in delivering fuel to stations.

Transport Secretary Grant Shapps has approved temporary visas for 5,000 overseas HGV drivers to help ease the crisis.
