Driver shouts 'I'll slap you!' at woman in petrol station row after she confronts him over 'jumping two-hour queue'

A DRIVER shouts "I'll slap you" at a woman in a petrol station row after she confronts him over "jumping a two-hour queue".

Beth Ashton filmed the tirade of verbal abuse she suffered in the line for petrol – believed to be outside a forecourt in London – yesterday.

She was told to "shut her mouth" and was branded a "d***head" and a "stupid b******".

In the clip, the man is seen arguing with Beth after she claimed he "rammed" his car in front of hers to cut into the line.

He insists it should be the traffic warden telling him where to park, not her.

He shouts: "D***head, is that your job or her job?"

Beth tells to man to "listen to her then", but he snaps back: "I f****ing will you p****. Shut your mouth, you d****head."

When she warns him that he is being recorded, he continues the torrent of abuse, saying: "So what? I'll slap that phone right out of her hand."

"This stupid b***** talking s***. You f***ing idiot, I'll get out of the car and slap you."

Beth shared the video to Twitter with the caption: "U ok mate? Tried to cut in at the petrol station ahead of a 2 hour queue by ramming."

It comes as nearly 200 soldiers are set to start delivering petrol on Monday in a bid to end the UK fuel crisis after going through a crash HGV course.

Military tanker drivers have been undertaking training at haulier sites and will be deployed to deliver fuel to forecourts across the country to help relieve the situation, which the Government insists is stabilising.

The Ministry of Defence approved the request for assistance and soldiers will start driving fuel lorries on Monday next week.

The new development will see soldiers driving HGVs after the PM was urged to "act now" as thousands of Brits panic buy at petrol stations across the country.

It was also announced that a temporary visa scheme for foreign HGV drivers that was due to expire on December 24 will now be extended to the end of February.

The Government said 300 fuel drivers will be able to come to the UK from overseas "immediately" under a bespoke temporary visa which will last until March.

And 4,700 other visas intended for foreign food haulage drivers will be extended beyond the initially announced three months and will last from late October to the end of February.

But Chancellor Rishi Sunak has warned that shortages of goods could continue until Christmas, adding that we're seeing "real disruptions in supply chains."

He told the Mail: "We are determined to do what we can to try to mitigate as much of this as we can."
