Russian TV has mocked 'panic-ridden' Britain over its petrol crisis and likened the clamber for fuel to the infamous sausage queues of the Soviet Union. 

Major pro-Kremlin channel NTV reported the UK was in 'true panic... in the grip of a fuel crisis' and suffering with food shortages. 

The channel is owned by the media arm of energy behemoth Gazprom, which has been accused of cutting gas supplies to Europe threatening a winter of misery.   

'Great Britain is in the grip of a fuel crisis, following a food crisis,' explained the NTV presenter Lilia Gildeeva before crossing to a correspondent in the UK.

'The few petrol stations that still have fuel are under siege as car owners are ready to fight for their lives for every litre of fuel. Queues at petrol stations are like sausage shortages in the Soviet Union.'
