“petrol station sues innocent motorist”


written by FEEBLETOE on 21/04/2013

I went into bp petrol station in cosham portsmouth dec/2012. the line for my cars petrol tank was full. so I had to line up on the opposite side.There was spillage on the floor [deisal.water unknown] so i parked off the spillage and started to fill up my tank . after about £8/£9 worth of fuel had gone into my car ...the pump tipped about 20% imagine my shock when this nasty little asian guy came out wagging his finger and blamed me...I looked at where the moutain base had shifted ans saw what looked like PILE OF RUST UNDERNEATH also the pump in front was out of order , surrounded by red and white tape.. another motorist commented that the same thing happened to that pump two days previous...UNBELIEVABLE...This nasty little man told me he was going to call the police and tried to stop me from leaving.. I had a call from an insurance company telling me that as I didnt drive into the pump that it wasnt a motor insurance issue and that would be te end of it...they couldnt believe that anyone could pull over a pump with force because it is bolted and rivited to the floor. I received a letter from a solicitir acting on his behalf that he was seeking damages for excessive force to the pump amounting to £810 to fix and rising...I have taken advise and have a solicitor in place trying to get them to prove the force wasnt excessive.I have spoken to a number of petrol stations regarding this and they say it appears to be poorly maintained and they are just looking for somebody to pay , what they should be paying and the pump tipping is preposterous...even the chap who delivers said that should not have happened..... so motorists STAY WELL CLEAR OF THIS GARAGE
