A SUPERMARKET has confirmed it is investigating three Isle of Wight motorists’ complaints they bought contaminated fuel.

A Sainsbury’s spokesman said maintenance work was taking place at the forecourt of its Newport filling station but there was no evidence it was connected to the reports of diesel contamination.

The work, to an underground petrol tank, resulted in closure of several pumps and is expected to be completed next week.
