'˜I believe the pump had become stuck, but it was rectified on the same day,' they said. 

On further precautions taken, they added: '˜The station had a price change the day after the fault occurred and two staff members went round and checked all the pumps were correct. 

'˜This was before the store itself opened.''‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹'‹
