LONDON July 4: Protests over high fuel prices are now underway in the UK, as vehicles purposefully drive slowly along motorways. Convoys have set off along the M4 and M5 this morning, according to police.
Forces have warned drivers could face “serious disruption” throughout Monday as the protests – which are calling for a fuel duty cut – cause blockages on roads.
Fuel protests have been mounting across the country for the past few weeks, and they are expected to get even more frequent, according to experts.
According to the experts at FairFuelUK, several demonstrations are set to take place in Yorkshire, M54, Essex, M5, A63, M180 and other major roads across the UK.
Howard Cox, the founder of the FairFuelUK campaign, said: “These are not just demonstrations against the record excruciatingly high petrol and diesel prices that rise each and every day.
“They are also about the sickening chronic manipulation of pump prices and the complete lack of scrutiny by our out-of-touch Government, in allowing unchecked petrol and diesel profiteering to run rife.
“And at the same time, this allegedly self-proclaiming low taxation Conservative Government is wallowing in £3billion of extra VAT in just the last year alone.
