‘Serious disruption’ as roads targeted in fuel protests
Motorists have experienced serious disruption across the country as protesters target motorways in a demonstration over high fuel prices.
Roads in various parts of the country were subject to traffic jams on Monday morning as protesters take action and call for a cut in fuel duty.
Protests will target mainly three-lane motorways and see slow-downs on two lanes, leaving the fast lane free, according to FairFuelUK founder Howard Cox.
As of Monday morning, demonstrations were ongoing at a Tesco petrol station in Shepton Mallet, on the M54 in Shropshire and on the westbound carriageway of the M4 near to the Prince of Wales crossing.
