The problem could last until Christmas.
The Prime Minister admits he knew about the HGV driver shortage "long before" June and says the problem could last until Christmas.
But Boris Johnson says he will not look to "uncontrolled immigration" to help tackle the issue.
He’s told the BBC the queues at petrol pumps have been driven by demand and points to other countries who are also witnessing a shortage of drivers.
