Government U-turn on petrol advice

The government is no longer urging drivers to top-up their petrol tanks, following union Unite's announcement that there will not be a strike by fuel tanker drivers over Easter.

Rules on fuel tanker drivers' hours have been temporarily relaxed to help the transport of supplies to filling stations.

Iain Watson reports.
