Coryton march disrupts fuel supply

Workers from Coryton oil refinery staged a protest outside the plant, disrupting the supply of fuel heading to petrol stations to voice their anger at the plant's closure. Some 900 jobs are at risk at the plant, formerly owned by Swiss-based company Petroplus. Administrator PwC has indicated it is unlikely to find a buyer to keep Coryton running as a refinery.

Union officials said they would aim to disrupt supplies of fuel from nearby terminals for a few hours every day and that the action would continue as long as needed.
