The Tesco Belmont petrol station has reopened following maintenance work that has taken two months to complete.

The filling station reopened at 6am this morning, with Unleaded prices among the lowest in the Herefordshire area at 156.9p per litre. Diesel is currently selling for 170.9p per litre.

A number of petrol stations in Herefordshire are charging a considerable amount more for both Unleaded and Diesel at present.

The work completed includes new underground tanks and the reopening of the filling station will be seen as a welcome boost to motorists following weeks of fuel shortages at other petrol stations across the South Wye area.
