Sainsbury's and Tesco will cut the price of fuel at their filling stations tomorrow, following Morrisons, which cut prices today.

The price of diesel at all three will fall by 2p per litre, while the price of petrol will go down by 1p.

The UK's Big Four supermarkets last announced a fuel price reduction in March. Usually when one retailer unveils a cut, the others quickly follow suit.

Sainsbury's share price has fallen by more than five per cent today, after the supermarket revealed an eight per cent slide in profits for the first quarter of the year this morning.
