Update: Manchester United legend filmed topping up petrol roadside from plastic Jerry Can

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes was seen by his daughter filling up his Mercedes with a plastic jerry can as the country anticipates a petrol scarcity.

His daughter Alicia captured the former England midfielder, who won 11 Premier League titles with Sir Alex Ferguson between 1996 and 2013, topping up his vehicle on Monday.

The upload comes as the country is gripped by worries of a petrol crisis, with several stations forced to close and others experiencing hours-long lines.

Scholes, on the other hand, appears to be set for his next few travels, having filled up his car from a portable container given over by someone he knows. In the video, a mysterious individual hands a canister to the 46-year-old, who is dressed in a black hoodie, and he begins filling up his car.

Alicia, 20, then poked fun at her father by joking that he can no longer challenge her when she has no petrol in her car, writing: “Last time u can have a go at me for having no petrol @paulscholesaaa.”

Regarding the fears over petrol, Business Secretary Kwasi Kwarteng agreed on Sunday to ‘implement a measure to temporarily exempt industry from the Competition Act 1998’.

That measure has been taken for ‘the purpose of sharing information and optimising supply’.

Kwarteng has said: “We have long-standing contingency plans in place to work with industry so that fuel supplies can be maintained and deliveries can still be made in the event of serious disruption.

“While there has always been and continues to be plenty of fuel at refineries and terminals, we are aware that there have been some issues with supply chains.

“This is why we will enact the Downstream Oil Protocol to ensure the industry can share vital information and work together more effectively to ensure disruption is minimised. “We thank HGV drivers and all forecourt staff for their tireless work during this period.”
