Good thing she was not smoking. .... definitely a dumb ass at the wheel.
The fuel stations I go have an attendant inside that can flip a switch as soon as something happens at the pumps.
So if a hose breaks the pump can be turned off before very much gas flows out.
Used to be woman were always getting preoccupied,where they took off with the hose still in the fill pipe.
However most hoses you have to hold the release to get the gas to flow,when you let up it stops.
Back in the day the hoses could be locked on, so you wouldn't have to hold it till the tank was full.
as well as here, you need to pay in advance, no more the attendant simply turns the pumps on for you, unless you are a real good customer they know very well.
also, i do believe a panic button is installed inside the building as you claim, and automatic fire protection.
clearly, that country (England perhaps??) needs to get up to speed on controlling thefts.
also, women of that body type, should wear a moomoo or jeans and a blouse..no need to make us run for the eye bleach.
I thought when the hose disconnected there is a automatic shutoff valve built in to the coupler for the emergency disconnect.
What Happens if You Drive Off With the Gas Pump Nozzle Still in the Car?

Rest assured that you won’t be causing any fireballs or explosions. The hose that attaches the nozzle to the gas pump is designed to break into two pieces when a certain amount of force is applied to it. Next time you’re at the gas station, check the hose for a metal coupling. That’s the break-away point. Once the hose is broken and you’re off on your merry way, check valves in the hose keep fuel from leaking out and creating a hazard.

There are those Fuel Stops (Diesel) that have not the concern for such trivial need of safety as they have the old school hoses where it breaks at the pump housing. Those run down fuel stops offering discount fuel prices.
Once in a while we'll see a truck floating down a road with the fuel handle and hose hanging from the open tank (and of course they have no C.B. or speak English).
I call the events in the video: Instant Karma.
That makes two of us. Lack of pressure is supposed to cut the power.
