Petrol pains

Despite the fact Lichfield’s roads seem to be back to normal this morning, anyone looking to fill up for a potentially long commute was in for disappointment at the Tesco filling station.

Cones prevented drivers from getting onto the forecourt at the start of the day. Not sure if it was weather related, but by putting the blockade across the forecourt entrance rather than the site entrance caused more problems than you’d expect.

Given that there’s only the petrol station and pharmacy on site now (the latter not being open at 7am this morning), you’d have thought they’d have put a statement of their closure on the actual junction.

Instead, drivers were forced to go round the filling station and brave the ice and a piece of road that hadn’t been used and was therefore iced over.

Every little (bit of information) helps…
