    Mr O’Donnell told the BBC that the alleged theft was a ‘massive hitto his family-run business, which has been running for more than 30 years and offers lorry drivers a place to park, shower eat and refuel overnight.

    The incident comes amid a nationwide fuel crisis, which has seen drivers forced to queue outside 가솔린 stations for hours, while many stations have been left with dwindling supplies of fuel following mass panic buying.

    Mr O’Donnell said CCTV footage, recorded at 12.45am, showed two lorries arriving at the truck stop at around midnight.

    He claimed the footage showed one of the lorries exited the truck stop around an hour later, while the second vehicle left at around 2am.

    The business owner claimed his two tankers of fuel, which have a meter in the office showing the amount of fuel left in each one, should have had a total of 43,000 litres in them.

    But when he checked the reading on Monday, Mr O’Donnell claimed that there was just 13,000 litres left in the two tanks.

    He claimed the alleged theft appeared to be a ‘professional job’, saying he will be forced to make an arrangement with his supplier to try and ‘survive‘the hit’.

    He told the BBC: ‘With everything going on with the fuel shortage right now, it’s just a crazy time.

    ‘We can still have lorries parked up, but we’re turning so many away at the moment and our pumps are still out of action.

    Hampshire Police said it was investigating the incident. MailOnline has contacted the force for further comment.

    Mr O’Donnell said the alleged theft has left his supplies low, forcing lorry and HGV drivers who normally use his facilities to queue up at petrol stations and try to get fuel amid the nationwide fuel crisis.

    Panic buying of fuel has escalated in recent weeks and drivers have been forced to queue for hours in a bid to get petrol, with many service stations being left with dwindling or depleted supplies.

    Motorists ignored Government pleas for calm as they jammed roads and police had to be called in to marshal drivers amid fears that fuel shortages could bring the economy to its knees.

    Ministers have been accused of dooming Britain to a Winter of Incompetence as panic buying of fuel escalated amid talks on giving temporary visas to foreign HGV drivers.

    The situation is improving in the North East and Yorkshire but the South East and Midlands are continuing to suffer, leaked Government analysis revealed today.

    Conservative former leader Sir Iain Duncan Smith told MailOnline today that there might be a case for prioritising supplies to London but the main thing was for people to calm down.

    그는 말했다: ‘London is always the first to panic and the last to get back to normal… I suspect what has been going on is since Covid people have abandoned trains and got back in cars. That has created greater demand.

    Sir Iain, who represents Chingford and Woodford Green in North East London, pointed out that many people commuting into London could see petrol stations busy as they travelled on arterial routes, and that ‘spookedthem about whether they had enough fuel.

    ‘London will get back eventually when people calm down,’ 그는 덧붙였다. Asked if supplies should be prioritised for the capital, 그는 말했다: ‘I think a bit of both. They have probably got a priority to get the petrol there, but the most important thing is for people to calm down.

    The Petrol Retailers Association said it had surveyed 1,200 fuel stations across the UK today, 과 52 per cent of sites reported having both petrol and diesel in stock, 21 per cent had only one in stock and 27 per cent were dry.
