PANIC buyers have been causing mayhem at petrol pumps across Derbyshire with long queues reported.

Motorists have headed to petrol stations ignoring calls not to queue after the Government told drivers to fill up half-empty tanks.

Some stations in the area have ran out of fuel because of the high demand.
