With the increase in fuel prices, Trading Standards officers from Merthyr Tydfil have carried out checks at petrol stations across the county to ensure accurate measures of fuel are being delivered to consumers.

In total, 74 fuel pumps across five sites were tested and all were found to be correct.

Councillor Michelle Symonds, Cabinet Member for Public Protection & Housing, said: “Although our officers can’t do anything around the price increase, we can at least ensure consumers are getting the measures they’re paying for.

“During this cost of living crisis our Trading Standards team will continue to monitor businesses to ensure consumers are protected from any unfair practices.”
