Breaking News - A "STUPID" panic buyer was spotted emptying out water bottles and filling them with petrol while she held up a 30-minute queue of desperate drivers behind her.
The daft driver was seen at the Shell garage in Cobham Services on the M25 - seemingly oblivious to the danger of using the wrong container.
The weekend frenzy reached fever pitch on Monday morning, as motorists continue to besiege filling stations after a weekend of chaos.
Drivers are facing huge queues at petrol station forecourts across the country as the petrol pump chaos caused by panic buying and a shortage of HGV drivers continues.
The woman is seen shamelessly emptying out a 1.5 litre plastic bottle before bending down to fill it up with fuel, before repeating the process with another.
Her forecourt faux pas was captured by baffled motorist Gavin Rabbitt, who called her hazardous life hack "ludicrous".
"I couldn't believe what I was seeing. I thought 'I can't believe the stupidity of this woman'," the dad-of-six said.
"This is the kind of thing that causes the problem. People filling up things they shouldn't be filling up and no one else can get the fuel because of other people's stupidity.
