BP petrol stations across the UK are currently unable to accept card payments, according to Highways England.
The agency said “We’ve been advised that all BP fuel stations across the UK are experiencing issues accepting card payments.
“Currently they’re only able to accept payments for fuel in cash only.
“This is affecting all motorway service areas with BP fuel stations.”
They added that BP had “advised us of the issue and they’re working on resolving it”.
There are 1,280 BP stations in the UK, according to their website.
