Britain has no plans yet to get the army to drive trucks to deliver fuel to petrol stations after a shortage of drivers strained supply chains, Environment Secretary George Eustice said on Monday.

"We've no plans at the moment to bring in the army to actually do driving," Eustice said.

Eustice said Ministry of Defence trainers were being drafted in to help clear a backlog of heavy goods vehicle (HGV) tests.

He said conditions needed to be improved for long-distance truck drivers.
