Tesco stole a march on its major supermarket rivals this morning by announcing it is to cut the cost of petrol and diesel by 2ppl at all of its petrol stations this afternoon.

A card skimming device has been found on a pay at pump machine on a supermarket forecourt in Fife, and police are warning members of the public to be wary of such devices in the Dunfermline area.

The fuel price cuts claimed by supermarkets earlier this week have been patchy, and in many cases below the 2ppl headline figure, according to the AA, which says non-supermarket retailers are undercutting superstores in some locations.

The four major supermarkets all announced price cuts of 2ppl on unleaded petrol and diesel effective from Tuesday March 14.
