Good Morning Britain viewers were left feeling rather unimpressed on Friday, as they accused the programme of scaring the public regarding the UKS’ petrol shortages.
Kate Garraway, presenter, and Ben Shephard spoke out about the fuel crisis that is gradually spreading across the UK because of a lack of HGV driver drivers.
While most viewers enjoyed the information, some viewers were annoyed by the program’s emphasis on the topic. This was especially since only a handful of petrol stations had been affected.
On Twitter, viewers shared their opinions.
One fan said: “First of all why are GMB scaremongering? And secondly, surely there’s other things to talk about than just this petrol ‘crisis’?”
Another viewer penned: “No the problem is you telling everyone there is a shortage of petrol!”
A third unimpressed viewer chimed in and commented: “There won’t be any fuel shortages or bulk buying if everyone stops listening to the media!! Don’t be taken in by them.”
While a fourth tweeted: “Britain running on empty’ is a grossly irresponsible headline. There’s plenty of fuel, but a disruption to supplying it because of driver shortages.”
