Good Morning Britain viewers were left feeling rather unimpressed on Friday, as they accused the programme of scaring the public regarding the UKS' petrol shortages.

Presenter Kate Garraway and Ben Shephard were on hand to explain the fuel crisis that is slowly sweeping across the UK due to the lack of HGV drivers.

But although most viewers soaked in the information, several others were left feeling annoyed with the emphasis on the topic and accused the programme of scaremongering especially because only a few petrol stations had been effected.

Taking to Twitter, spectators aired their thoughts.

One fan said: "First of all why are GMB scaremongering? And secondly, surely there’s other things to talk about than just this petrol 'crisis'?"

Another viewer penned: "No the problem is you telling everyone there is a shortage of petrol!"

A third unimpressed viewer chimed in and commented: "There won’t be any fuel shortages or bulk buying if everyone stops listening to the media!! Don’t be taken in by them."

While a fourth tweeted: "Britain running on empty’ is a grossly irresponsible headline. There’s plenty of fuel, but a disruption to supplying it because of driver shortages."
