Taxi strike: Protest is underway in Maidenhead

Dozens of taxi drivers are demonstrating on the streets of Maidenhead against planned changes to the licensing system.

Hackney carriage drivers turned out in force this morning, meeting in Stafferton Way from about 8am. Many stuck posters to their cars and one towards the front of the procession was waving a Union Jack flag from his window.

They set off shortly after 8.30am after a quick safety briefing from police.

 

 

Officers are maintaining a heavy police presence around the town. The drivers' route is a loop which takes in roads including Broadway, Queen Street, St Ives Road and York Road.

 

 

As they passed Maidenhad Town Hall many have been beeping their horns.

The demonstration is expected to continue until about 10.30am.
