Obviously we are very concerned.

for the first time this year we had arranged to get local supplies without the need for our own tanker. All we can do is hope that the mad panic that is sweeping Scotland subsides. There is enough fuel if everyone stops hoarding it.

The problem is Diesel in most places, and although trials bikes don't run on diesel (which one of our committee members knows as a fact) our observers vehicles and army land-rovers do.

we are in constant communication with the people who know, but nothing is certain. The local companies and organisations have been very supportive and will do everything possible to help us out.

This all seems to have been a bit of a storm in a teacup. The press are reporting everything back to normal. Certainly plenty tankers leaving Grangemouth.
