25 cars damaged after contaminated petrol sold at Morrisons in Kendal

petrol pumpDrivers who filled up their cars with contaminated petrol at Morrisons in Kendal on Monday have taken to Facebook to vent their anger.

Approximately 25 customers were affected after buying unleaded petrol which was contaminated with water.

Several drivers reported their cars breaking down shortly after leaving the Morrisons store on Queen Katherines Avenue in Kendal.

One customer posted on the social media site Facebook, saying: “I don’t suppose anyone has had any issues with Morrisons fuel tonight?

“Just filled up and a mile down the road my car broke down. Maybe a coincidence but was fine before I fuelled it??”

Another said: “Be careful if filling up at Morrisons, a few cars have broken down after filling up with unleaded.”

A spokesman for Morrisons said: “Water was detected in one our unleaded tanks.

“As soon as we became aware of the problem, the pumps were shut down.

“We estimate that approximately 25 cars have been affected. Anyone who thinks they have taken some of the contaminated fuel should call our Kendal store on 01539 734554.

“We apologise to these motorists for any inconvenience that this has caused, and are passing their details to the AA who will carry out any necessary repairs.”
