Taxi drivers demonstrated in Maidenhead today over Royal Borough plans to change a licensing policy.
Hackney Carriage drivers were protesting because the council is considering de-restricting the number of hackney carriage licenses in the borough.
The drivers say this would mean more competition for space and custom.
Private hire drivers have submitted a petition to the council asking for the de-restriction as they feel anyone should be able to obtain a hackney plate.
The demonstration, which was heavily policed, started at 8am and caused some delays on the roads around the town centre.
