London 2012: Cabbies stage Games Lane protest
London taxis have staged a go-slow protest at Hyde Park Corner in central London over Olympic traffic lanes.
The protest was moved forward by three hours after police said they could not demonstrate on the Olympic Route Network from 16:00 to 03:00 BST.
Cabbies have held two protests over not being allowed into the lanes which are reserved for officials and athletes.
Traffic was “stationary” from about 14:00 till 14:50 when police cleared the area, BBC London Travel desk said.
This in turn led to congestion on all approaches to Hyde Park Corner at Grosvenor Place.
