(Reuters) - British retailer EG Group said on Friday it is imposing a purchase limit of 30 pounds per customer for fuel due to the "unprecedented customer demand" in the UK.

"Due to the current unprecedented customer demand for fuel and associated supply challenges we have taken the decision to introduce a limit of £30 per customer on all of our grades of fuel," a company spokesperson said in a statement, adding that the limit will exclude HGV drivers and emergency services.
