Taxi strike: Demonstration ends outside Maidenhead Town Hall

A taxi demonstration in Maidenhead this morning has ended.

Hackney Carriage drivers gathered outside the town hall in St Ives Road holding placards and chanting 'we want justice' and 'no more taxis'.

They had driven around the town centre for about two hours in protest against council plans to change a licensing policy.

Waheed Azam, organiser and Royal Borough Taxi Association representative said he thought about 50 drivers had taken part, adding he felt the demonstration had gone very well.

He thanked Thames Valley Police for its assistance but warned that if the council did not listen to drivers' point of view they would consider demonstrating at the Olympics.

A similar demonstration is expected to take place in Windsor on Thursday.

See Thursday's Advertiser for a full report and pictures from the protest.
