Megane Petrol tank stops filling even though it's not full!

Just got my first ever car - a 2009 renault megane III. All very exciting except I have noticed one odd thing which I don't know whether I should be worried about!

Went to petrol station the other day with petrol tank pretty empty and wanted to fill it up. Got pumping in the petrol and it stopped after about 30 litres as if the petrol tank was full. Turned car on and petrol tank was only about 2/3 full! Tried pumping more in but no luck..went to petrol station down the road and filled up tank completely without a problem!

Thought this was some one-off but it happened again this evening at a different petrol station....was filling and it stopped me at about 2/3 full again....haven't been back to see if i can fill up fully again!

What's going on here - has anyone seen this themselves and had it fixed or is this something common that I needn't worry about?

thanks for your help!
